AOC on the move

On Sunday, Jan. 27, the Allegheny Outdoor Club (AOC) will cross-country ski at the Wilderness Lodge in Wattsburg. Participants will meet at the rental hut at 2 p.m. There is a $15 charge to ski these groomed trails and ski rentals are available. We will be eating in the Lodge restaurant afterward. If you’ve ever wondered if you would like to learn cross-country skiing, this outing would be an excellent opportunity to try these gentle slopes. For more information, call Cheryl Kittner in Meadville at (814) 795-4622 or visit the Wilderness Lodge website for driving directions.
