MAKING THE BEST OF WINTER – It was a beautiful evening for Ski Pontiac’s second “Moonlight Ski and Snowshoe” at Astra Estates in Norway Bay, February 17. Under a starry sky, the 2+ km torchlit trail was enjoyed by over 100 people, with many staying for the food, company and musical entertainment on offer. A number of people took advantage of the free loan of equipment thanks to a partnership between Ski at School and Ski Pontiac. Music was provided by the Bobby Dale and Brent Plouffe Band with guest Cathy Collins.

Canadian Tire Shawville and Spruceholme Inn sponsored the event and over 40 businesses and individuals contributed items and gift certificates to make the evening’s silent auction a very successful fundraiser.

Ski Pontiac will be holding their Annual General Meeting at the Bristol Firehall in Norway Bay, March 10 at 1:00 p.m. The non-profit organization is entirely volunteer-run, and more are always welcome! For more information follow Ski Pontiac on Facebook or email
