When it comes to celebrating winter and 'Rotary Winterama', who needs snow?  Not G. C. Huston Public School in Southampton!

With an unusually warm February and little to no snow, it was time to improvise.  G. C. Huston is one of the biggest school supporters of Rotary's major Winterama FUNdraiser for youth projects in the region, so it was a time to be creative.

Winterama was held Saturday, February 25th, but for G. C. Huston the celebration began the day before on Friday.  With rain and storms outside, all the 'winter' activities happened inside.  From sledding to fort building, the 'penguin' walk to curling ... students took part in a wide variety of activities.
