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.
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.”

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.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.
Ten contributors have made compelling statements about why they have donated to the campaign. Click here to view their statements.
