Description

Even if you didn’t know John Caouette, you’ll soon have the opportunity to be warmed by his memory in Caouette Cabin, a structure currently being built at Twin Lakes as a heated skaters’ cabin and an all-season shelter for public use.

If you did know Caouette, a local man who died in 2010, you’ll immediately recognize the fitting nature of this memorial; it reflects not only Caouette’s love of skating, but also his generosity of spirit, one that thrived on bringing people together to enjoy the outdoors and each other.

Please check back often; this slideshow will be updated as work continues.
