A ‘winterfest’ of fun-filled outdoor activities is coming to Canal Shores Golf Course on Feb. 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Co-sponsored with the City of Evanston Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department, we promise a day of fun activities for the entire family. Olaf from Disney’s FROZEN will be on hand to greet participants from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Activities include cross country skiing on a fully-groomed trail, snowshoeing, beginner lessons, and many fun surprises. Refreshments will be served.

A Community Approach to Clearing Snow From Sidewalks

From the Atlantic CITYLAB website by Lydia Lee posted Feb. 6, 2015:

"In most places, sidewalk snow-clearing is left to individual homeowners. In Ann Arbor, one neighborhood decided to pool its resources instead."

The SnowBuddy tractor, driven and funded by volunteers, clears all 12 miles of sidewalk of the Water Hill neighborhood of Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Paul Tinkerhess)

Saw the above in a tweet from City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz this morning.  Thought it worth sharing.
