These photos were sent to me by Emma Cottage who participated in the Nordic Night event sponsored by the Norwich Recreation department this past Saturday evening.

After you check out the video and photos, why not take a moment to sign up for the next one. Here is some info on how to do that and a message from Brie Swenson, Norwich recreation director.
Our first ‘Nordic at Night’ was a pretty convincing success. Thank you to everyone who volunteered: The Phipps Family for traffic control, Lily Trajman for helping choose and mark the trail early, on site lantern lighters Kristin and Stuart Close (and their friend Linnea), Kristin Fauci, Emma Cottage, Colleen Fox, the Manning Family for lantern clean up, UVLT’s Paul B (it was his BIRTHDAY), Joel & Elissa Bradley. You all brought this crazy idea together, and we thank you. If I am forgetting anyone, I apologize. You can find photos of the event here: https://norwichvt.myrec.com/info/gallery/default.aspx?CategoryID=236#photos . We will host two more Nordic at Night events - sign up on our website

A nice fire to take away the chill as the participants chill out and about skiing or walking the trails.
And the lights shine bright and just waiting for the night
