LEILA METSARANTA MEMORIAL
Thanks to the many donors, we have collected sufficient funds to plant two trees and install a bench with a plaque to help us honour Leila's memory. Leila's husband, Marc, has selected the trees and approved the wording on the plaque. The bench with the plaque and trees will be located in Centennial Park where Leila spent many hours staying fit. Look for the bench and trees to appear in June.
Registration for Club programs is available on www.zone4.ca if you cannot make it to the Open House.
Trail passes can be purchased by mailing in the registration form on the Trail Pass Fees section of the website.
NEW - VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT
Lappe Nordic Ski Club is a "club", not a business, that operates primarily through the efforts of its members who volunteer time and effort. This allows the club to operate its many excellent programs with very low fees for its member participants. To ensure this continues, the Lappe Board has introduced a formal Volunteer Engagement plan. This plan details volunteer opportunities as well as exemptions for new members and members in the younger Jackrabbit programs.
