*************************
Winter in the north is always breathtaking, especially after so much snowfall. Consider buying tickets for our 3rd annual Chocolate Express on Jan. 14, 2018 at Stokely Creek Lodge, and experience the wonderland with your family and friends. Last year, over 400 participants skied and snowshoed in a memorable afternoon of chocolatey treats and lighthearted fun.

The Chocolate Express features a 2.5km snowshoe trail, or 2.5km, 5km, and 10km ski trails. Scattered across every trail are chocolate stations where participants can enjoy homemade delicacies guaranteed to entice your sweet tooth. As Trail Sponsor, Maitland Ford Lincoln is providing shuttle service to bring people to and from Stokely Creek Lodge. Participants simply park at Mountain View Elementary School (Mahler Road, Goulais River, Ont.) and the team at Maitland will run the shuttles back and forth every five minutes.

“We had such great enthusiasm for this event last year that unfortunately we maxed out the parking lot at Stokely. This year we want to make sure everyone has a spot and can safely get to this great event!” – Katherine Williamson, ARCH event coordinator

Chocolate Express tickets are available for $25 online until Jan. 11, or at ARCH Hospice, The Shoe Fits, and Stokely Creek Lodge until Jan. 14. Participants who purchase tickets before Jan. 11 will receive one free dragonfly buff.

Tickets are free to all participants who choose to fundraise a minimum of $50. The top three fundraisers receive an ARCH Hospice gift bag. All fundraisers will also receive a free buff! To learn more, please visit here, join our Facebook event, or call our event coordinator, Katherine, at 705-942-1556 ext. 237.
