Portage-Lisgar MP Candice Bergen, recently, hosted a skate on Crescent Lake. Those who attended enjoyed an afternoon of skating, hot dogs and cocoa.
Typically, Bergen hosts Christmas teas to celebrate the season. This year, however, to connect with more families, she decided to plan a skating event for constituents of all ages to enjoy a Canadian winter pastime.
“I was overjoyed to see such an excellent turnout despite the event being outdoors and the weather not being the best,” said Bergen. “Although we hoped for sunny skies, Mother Nature had different plans. I am thankful to those who came out for a skate and a chat even though it was cold.”
