The cold temperatures, blowing wind, and drifting snowflakes set a perfect stage for our second Skating Wintegration Outing to Dufferin Grove Saturday (Dec 7) afternoon. 22 members came out, ranging in age from 5 to over 50, and a wonderful time was had by all. Many of our newcomers were trying out skating for the first time, and the kids in particular were fearless! Slipping, sliding and falling did not dampen their enthusiasm for this new Canadian sport in the least. Equally impressive were the adults, willing to go out on skates for the first time, and as adults, we KNOW what happens when you fall ten times in a row! After skating, we had time to gather by the campfire nearby, eat marshmallows, drink hot chocolate made right on the campfire, and to try the Canadian delicacy, ”s’mores”. They got that name because when you have one, then you want SOME MORE. Get it? S’more?
Thank-you to everyone who came out. If you missed this one, don’t worry, we have something happening every week all winter long. We look forward to seeing you at the next Culture Link Wintegration adventure – explore Toronto’s Christmas Market on Dec 15 with Wintegration Club.
