If having fun can be considered a healthy pursuit unto itself, then this year’s Winterfest was a healthful occasion twice over, having offered the right combination of programs intended to nurture the body and activities designed purely for enjoyment.

The weekend line-up of free events kicked off with a soup dinner followed by a live show featuring Michael Trautman on Friday evening, January 16, at Deer Isle-Stonington Elementary School, which served as the epicenter of Winterfest.
