Nominations for Avalon Nordic Executive
Nominations are now open for the executive of the Avalon Nordic ski club. If you would like to make a long term committment to promoting and sustaining a dynamic cross-country ski club on the Avalon Peninsula, please consider joining the AN executive. The election of officers will take place May 2 at the Worsley Park Lodge in Chamberlains. A good way to start is by joining the executive as a member-at-large. This provides an opportunity to learn how the club works in preparation for moving into a more specific job when it becomes open. For more information please contact club secretary Marie Wadden
