WINTERSPORTS -- Two-time Paralympian Sean Halsted of Rathdrum will be the featured speaker on Nov. 5 at a gathering, dinner and auction for cross-country skiers and supporters at the Southside Senior Center, 3151 E. 27th Ave.

The event is a fundraiser for Spokane Nordic Ski Association and a new adaptive nordic ski program.
