Does the winter have you feeling down? If you can’t beat em, join em! That was the idea behind the annual Winter Fun Day held behind the Limestone Community School over the weekend. News Source 8’s Angela Christoforos reports…
The 5th annual Winter Fun Day in Limestone was all about having fun in the sun- I mean SNOW.
Director of Limestone Parks & Rec Sara Shaw said, “This is for everyone of all ages people can come in and they can snow shoe if they don’t have skiis and they’re adults and want to come skiing for the day, the point of it is to try to get people outside and enjoying our winter weather here.”
Last year there was hardly any snow, this year that’s hardly the case. Event organizers say every year dog sledding is one of the most popular attractions. From Dog sledding, to sledding yourself, cross country skiing, even a game of laser tag.
The Chamber also hosted indoor activities like arts and crafts and a Clam Bake for people who didn’t want to stay outside all day. But let’s face it- whether you like it or not, the winter cold is here to stay for a bit of a while!
Assistant Residential Life Director of the Maine School of Science & Mathematics Cyndi Trapnall said, “Winter Fun Day will never be warm so my advice to everybody is just dress warm and enjoy the activities.”
“We’re in Maine so 6 months out of the year at least we’re going to have snow so it’s really important that we embrace our winter weather and enjoy it and find things that are active to do outside,” said Shaw.
And the cold doesn’t necessarily bother everyone…
Tom Pinette who attended Winter Fun Day said, “No. It will never stop me!”
Over 100 people attended the Winter Fun Day event. The event was hosted by the Limestome Rec Department as well as MSMM, Rotary, and the Chamber of Commerce.
