7th Annual Winter
For the seventh winter, a
hardy group of 15 volunteers, campers and enthusiasts spent a sunny
winter weekend in the snow at Ruskoka. The driveway was cleared of snow and
the main buildings were 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! The Photo Gallery has
been updated with NEW photographs from the 2007 Winter Retreat.
