Update on the Ruskoka 2006 Calendar
As usual, the Ruskoka calendar has made its way into homes and offices of Ruskoka supporters everywhere! While it has virtually sold out, there are still a few left - remember, it shows Orthodox holy days and civil calendar dates, highlights Ruskoka and community events, provides info on our supporters in the business community and, of course, features great shots of Ruskoka and its campers! If you want to pick one up, contact [email protected] or [email protected], or at 416-232-0829.

Categories of donations are: Founder - from $3000 / Builder - $2000-$2999 / Supporter - $1000-$1999 / In memoriam - from $1000 / Donor - $100-$999. Contact George Skok at 416-483-2441 or [email protected]. All donors will be acknowledged through plaques, announcements and commemorative lists.
Report on Winter Weekend,
A hardy group of 15 volunteers and enthusiasts spent a wonderful time in the snow at Ruskoka. Roofs were cleared of snow and the main building was opened and cleaned. Everyone enjoyed the excellent Lenten food, the Reader's Service, tobogganing and hiking in the woods. Don't miss this opportunity next year!
Ruskoka Work Weekend,
With spring upon us, Ruskoka is starting the season with the first work weekend on May 13 and 14, 2006. Enjoy the warmer weather while helping with spring cleaning, repairs, and minor construction projects. Come help open Ruskoka for the summer! Call Alex if you are interested in coming. Watch the www.ruskoka.com website for updates on this and future work weekends.
