After your torchlit snowshoe, enjoy cocoa, cookies, and roaring fires! We will be selling raffle tickets for GREAT prizes – all proceeds and donations directly support Camp Daggett.


It’s time for the annual Guns N Hoses charity hockey game, Saturday night, 6pm at Centre Ice Arena in TC.  The police team will face-off against the firefighters in this always fun event.
