Family Snow Shoe event – Feb. 8

Carrol’s Corner Community Centre has a Family snow shoe event scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 8th starting at 1 pm. Anne Warburton will start the session with a bit of an information session on snowshoes and the history, different types, etc. Anne will then take folks outside and show everyone how to properly put on and fit their snowshoes before heading off for a walk on our “Mastodon Trail”.

The event will finish up with some hot chocolate, snacks, and a few draws for ‘swag’ we have. The Centre has also ordered a snowshoe kit which Anne will use to demonstrate the traditional weaving used in these shoes.
