Roscoe Clan Donates to AN

Family members challenge skiers

Mick Sheffield, his siblings and his cousins have made a generous $1,100 contribution to the Allegany Nordic equipment fund… and they don’t even ski at Allegany State Park! They want Allegany Nordic to continue to advance the sport of cross country skiing on the Art Roscoe Trails so that the legacy of Art Roscoe will live on.

The Roscoe clan reunited at ASP for the Art Roscoe Loppet in February this year. In the photo above, front row: Craig Roscoe, Tammy  Roscoe, Carrie Sheffield (Mick's daughter). Back row: Dana Roscoe, Heidi Roscoe Shea,  Jack Roscoe (Craig and Tammy's son), Mick Sheffield.

This is not the first contribution to Allegany Nordic from Roscoe descendants. Mick and family members from Oakville, Ontario donated $600 two years ago. Mick, grandson of Art Roscoe who lives in Maine, has been following Allegany Nordic since he found our website four years ago.

In his note accompanying the check, Mick Sheffield said, “The Roscoe family in hopes that it will stimulate more donations that can help Allegany Nordic and the Art Roscoe area prosper.”

Art Roscoe Ski-Touring Area dedication

A lumberjack at heart, Art chose to cut the ribbon in a manner fitting of his background.

Art Roscoe’s grandson, Mick Sheffield, recently passed along some wonderful memorabilia and historical information about his grandfather and our beloved ski trails. Mick also provided me a copy of the Art Roscoe Ski-Touring Area dedication ceremony program which contains not only valuable historical information about the ceremony, but information about the trails and their construction.

Visit the Trail History page learn all the details about the trail construction and download a PDF file containing the scanned document.

Fundraising Campaign- $12,450!

Allegany Nordic’s capital campaign is approaching the 3-year mark and we have received contributions totaling more than most of us thought was possible. We’ve received well over $11,000 in contributions and we have contributed three pieces of grooming equipment for the park and refurbished a couple more. This is no small accomplishment and we can all be proud of this success.

October 2011- ASP staff and Allegany Nordic members stand behind the donated trail roller purchased with campaign proceeds.

Please visit the CONTRIBUTE page to see the list of donors who have given generously.

More than 80 generous contributions got us to this point, many with two and some with three contributions. 15% of the dollar total came from Canada. 40% came from the greater Buffalo area.

Diminishing financial resources and aging equipment remain significant challenges facing the cross country ski program at Allegany State Park.
