Preserve Moonlight Ski - Jan 152011

It's volunteers like Pieter Litchfield and Kevin Joyce on their snow mobiles pulling volunteers Peg McCanty and Wendy Whittmore on sleds laying down luminaries every fifty feet that make sure paths are lit for skiers and snowshoers.

With snow coming down Saturday January 15 Peg and Wendy made sure the paper bag luminaries were tightly closed. Can't let the candles get wet..

That evening volunteers circled the trails lighting the luminaries and setting off the two bonfires.

Other volunteers had the stove lit and warming hut snug and warm. Other volunteers were renting the loaner pairs of Dion snowshoes.

The Wilton Rotary as usual was handling the traffic and directing cars to the appropriate parking lot.

Great turn-out for the annual Moonlight Ski and it pays to be early.

Volunteers are essential for the Wilton Preserve and they make the Moonlight Ski and the Fall Open House possible.

Margo Olson (see story Page 5) is the new director and she can use your help. Give her a call - 450-0321.
