With the help of Forbush Corner Cross-Country Skiing, we were able to purchase new Madshus ski equipment using five grants totaling $5000. A special thanks to the following organizations who awarded us grants:

Ann Wagar and I met with 42 very enthusiastic middle schoolers this past week to fit equipment. We look forward to a wonderful upcoming ski season in beautiful Gaylord, MI. 

Whether or not an organization chooses to fund our ski club or not, I am very grateful for all the organizations that help make our community a better place. I am a few sets of skis short and have a small waiting list of kids looking to get in, but Ann and I will make it work with what we have. I still have two grant request out there and am hopeful things will work out.
