Open House for the Merrickville District Trails Society and the Merrickville Cross-Country Ski Club


submitted by Tim Allen

On Saturday January 21, 2017, we are having an open house at the Merrickville District Community Health Centre from 9 am to 12 noon – all are invited to attend. Come and exchange new year’s greetings and find out about planned activities on the trails through the winter. At 10 am. we will start a pleasant hour with John Mundy, who will talk on “Walking the French Camino”. Last March and April, John walked over 500km in the south of France. His journey along the GR 65 long distance footpath followed a medieval pilgrimage route from Le Puy en Velay to the French-Spanish border at St. Jean Pied de Port. His talk and slide show will make you want to brush up on your French and put on your hiking boots.

Refreshments will be served throughout the morning. After the open house, for those who are interested, we plan for two separate outings along the trails, a walk and a ski, according to the weather. Once again, all are invited, so come and share a winter weekend with old friends or new acquaintances.
