New Equipment for the 2019 Season!

92BAC200-14CE-468E-8EA4-09306A3ABBB3

An opportunity arose last fall to secure some new-to-us oars for the club. In order to make this un-budgeted purchase, we sought assistance from our members to make financial contributions. They stepped up! A huge thank you to Austen Gilliland, the Bermingham / Lambert Family, Brad McIlwain, Cynthia Hoskins, Lefort Home Builders, Sally Dean, Spencer Scott, Tracy Brown, Weed Man Maritimes, and two other anonymous donors, who collectively contributed enough for the club to buy the oars!
