NCLL winter kickoff scheduled

MARQUETTE – The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning will hold its “Sea to Sky” winter kickoff from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Jan. 7 in the community room of the Peter White Public Library in Marquette.

Participants will be able to build their own trifle and then see a presentation by local sea kayak instructor Sam Crowley about his 2013 adventures.

Crowley went sea kayaking in Gweii Hanass, a group of islands in northern British Columbia.

He will also share his hiking and backpacking experiences at Glacier National Park in Montana.

This event is free for NCLL members and $5 for non-members. Pre-register by Jan. 3 by calling 227-2979.
