January 12 - Sledding

This week we will be sledding at Four Seasons Park (next to St Jerome's School).  Same times (6:15 - 7:15).

Beavers MUST wear a helmet and bring your own sled.  Meet at the top of the hill, and make sure you sign in with the leader with the binder so we know who is there.  Parents are welcome to stay, and siblings can attend if a parent is there (we cannot be responsible for siblings).

Hot Chocolate will be served (Beavers and leaders only - we can provide to siblings / parents if there is enough left over - usually there is, but I cannot guarantee this).
