Lantern Ski Thank You and Upcoming Loppets

Lantern Ski Thank You

A great big thank you to all the volunteers and donors who participated in the Lantern Ski on Dec. 28, 2017.The amount of teamwork required to host such an event is significant and we are very grateful to all the volunteers, donors, ski and snow shoe participants for making this annual tradition a success.

We estimate that just under 300 hundred participants  attended which included 136 non-member guests. The event raised $1,829.34 in donations for the Foodbank and LHNS. It required 45 volunteers contributing 175 hours of work to host this event. To top it all off everyone had a great time and no injuries reported.

A special thank you to Mike Melin owner of Access Precision Machining for the lantern kerosene, Kari Wilkinson for the poster design, Kari Dukeshire & Bernie Weare and family for providing and placing over 150 paper candle bag lanterns and Roland Huster for the use of his shop and property to store the lantern storage trailer.
