Winter Pot Luck Social – Enjoying Winter with Bruce Trail Friends

By Guest Blogger Joan Richard

The forecast was grim, with snow and cold, but inside all was cozy and cheery.  A brave group of intrepid hikers spent the morning in the woods, led by the ever faithful Albert McMaster.

And then the best magic of all was the meal itself which somehow always satisfies with a wide variety of interesting dishes.  Cleanup was pretty quick with a lot of willing hands.  Everyone was trying to get home before the snow became too much.

Thank you Jackie and Cec Clark who put in a great deal of effort, and thanks to all who came out and made the event a fun sociable day.
