For a change, it appears the ice will be very nice for one of the Upper Valley Trails Alliance’s biggest fundraisers of the year.


The Lake Morey Skating Trail is set to host the annual UVTA Skate-a-Thon on Jan. 21 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. The trail, a 4½-mile loop, will be open for skaters to show how many laps they can complete in support of the UVTA.

The group of boys took to taking turns sliding on the ice when there was a lull in the fishing action. (Valley News – Sarah Priestap)
