The biggest party on snow! The highlight of the winter season!   Be sure NOT to miss it - Winona Forest's Stone Wall Snowshoe Event! The biggest party on snow! The highlight of the winter season!   Be sure NOT to miss it - Winona Forest's Stone Wall Snowshoe Event! No one needs to dread winter anymore. I know it's tough to get out and run in winter. Slushy roads, cold temps, and darkness are just a few of the obstacles we face. With snowshoe races like this, you will stay in shape, and truly experience what winter in the Tug Hill offers. For you veterans, you know what I'm talking about. But for those trying this snowshoe race for the first time, the "Stone Wall" has evolved into one of the biggest snowshoe events in the country, and for good reason. With reliable Tug Hill snow, unique awards, a snowshoe give away, and a fantastic post race party that includes complimentary hot foods and music, this is the "NOT TO MISS" event of the winter season. Choose from a 5K citizen's distance that accomodates all ability levels, and is family friendly. Choose to race, run, or walk with friends. The 10K course is one you will never forget, and is designed for those who are very fit, with snowshoe running experience. If you want to walk the 10K distance, please make arrangements for an earlier start time. Race venue is conveniently located 6 miles off Exit 39 (Mannsville exit) from I81, at CCC Camp/Rt 90/Bargy Road. Do not use your navigation device to guide you to the race venue, as it does not know that some roads in the area are seasonal roads, not plowed in the winter time. Don't have snowshoes? No problem, just add them to your registration.

What a Young Wife Ought to Know, a tragic romance by internationally renowned Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch, will be directed by Rosemary Doyle and stars Kingston acting and life partners Anna Sudac and Jesse MacMillan, joined by 2018 Fringe Star Alexandra Montangese. What a Young Wife Ought to Know is based on a compilation of letters women sent to a famous birth control advocate in the last century. This poignant and tender play frankly examines the physical and mental dilemma of passionate young married woman in the 1920's with no access to birth control. This play brings to life struggles that remain surprisingly current.
