Shelters sheltered by mild winter
SHARON — A handful of Region One students gathered at Silver Lake Conference Center in Sharon Saturday, Feb. 25, for an Outdoor Leadership Workshop sponsored by the Housatonic Youth Service Bureau. Emily Abbott, a sixth-grader at North Canaan Elementary School, found the emergency shelter she and some friends built in December was still structurally sound. Of course, the shelter hasn’t had to withstand a typical New England winter. The group decided to leave the shelters up until the next Outdoor Leadership Workshop in April, hoping to get some snow to put them to the test.
