Ski and Snowboard Club – Space STILL available for this Wednesday’s Trip!
There are still a number of spots available for the ski and snowboard trip to Mt. Wachusett this Wednesday, 1/10. The snow is excellent and it’s supposed to be a toasty 30 degrees! All details can be found on Ms. Fitzgerald’s website. Please let her know as soon as possible if you plan to sign up!
To all club members, please be aware that if we do not reach capacity for our trips we will have to assess a small surcharge to all club members this winter in order to cover our bus and chaperone expenses.
