Ridgeway Community School, a kindergarten to fifth grade elementary school in southeastern Winona County, is seeking donations of used youth-sized, cross-country ski equipment for its after school Nordic Ski Club. Over 40 of the school’s students are participating in this year’s club and the school needs additional youth and adult-sized waxless skis, boots, bindings and poles as well as snow shoes to outfit all the club members and volunteer adult assistants. Students are charged a minimal $5 fee to participate in the club, so that all students who want to learn to ski are given the opportunity. The club wishes to thank community members and St. Mary’s University for the donations of equipment they have already received. Donations of ski equipment can be dropped off at the school or at Adventure Cycle and Ski in Winona. For additional information contact the school at 454-9566 or www.ridgewayschool.org .
