Friends Abreast Dragon Boating
On November 26, the team met for a festive dinner and social. It was wonderful to see everyone with their seasonal bling!
Despite a hot summer and low water we were able to fill the boat twice a week for practise. Our team entered the Salmon Arm festival in June. With so many travelling this season we were not able to fill the slate to enter out of town festivals. In honour of our sponsors we hope to make a good effort to enter out of town festivals in the summer of 2016. We have several new members who need to experience the excitement at a large festival!
A highlight for the season was a nighttime paddle following the glow of the full moon across the bay. Another highlight was hosting visiting survivors in the boat. One evening a young mother introduced her family and she shared her story of survival with the team. She was travelling across Canada with her young family and they spent the night in Salmon Arm. It is our hope that she fulfilled her desire to join a team when she returned to her home.
We welcome new members, watch for the announcement of our AGM on the website.
Thank you to all the committee members who work so diligently to arrange participation in the awareness projects. The Parade, Relay, Carnation and mammogram reminders. Thank you to the members who volunteer at the mammogram clinics.
We are always looking for BC Survivors to come aboard. No experience necessary we will teach you how to paddle.
