Our activities include walking, jogging, hiking, cycling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Whenever possible we have two to three levels of difficulty in an activity. People who wish to go a shorter distance or at a slower pace may do so. We also have social events which include a monthly breakfast, two potluck dinners, and a Christmas luncheon.
