President’s Message for Dec. 2014
The holidays are nearly here and of course that means rich food, parties, presents and slothfulness. The Nordic club would like to assist in all of these wonderful things. First of all, our Dec. 2 club meeting will offer our annual cookie exchange. Bring two dozen cookies to share with the “baking challenged” and to exchange with other bakers to take home an assortment of goodies for the holidays. Also, the leftover cookies will be used to start a gift basket for the highway department who plow 4th of July parking lot.
To counteract the malaise of it all…. Chris Lovejoy, yoga instructor and massage therapist at Life Center Therapies for Well Being will be leading us in some stretching and tune-up exercises to gets us in shape for the winter ski and snowshoe season. Dress in loose clothing to work those tired and stiff muscles during her presentation.
Lastly, we all like presents. Start gathering prizes for our annual fundraiser–Best Hand Fun Ski slated for Sat, Jan. 3rd at 4th of July Pass. You can help us out by obtaining gift certificates from local vendors or sponsor an activity or there may be a Christmas gift that you received that was not on your wish list that would make a good donation. Just don’t let the loved one know what happened to the treasured item. Also, volunteers are needed to hand out cards on the ski and snowshoe trails. Invite your friends as this is Free Ski Day in Idaho and a park and ski pass is not required.
Bring your check book, if you haven’t purchased your park n’ ski pass ($25) for this season. The Panhandle Nordic Club receives funding through these sales. Also join the club ($15) and become part of the fun and get email updates of club activities.
See you on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd at 7:00 pm. Address is CDA Police Station, 3818 Schreiber Way, CDA across the street from the US Forest Service. Let’s hope for an early snow to get things going….Jim
