Friends Abreast Dragon Boating

On December 6th, the team enjoyed a Christmas dinner and social to kick off the Festive Season. It was a great turnout, a great potluck with lots of laughs!

Our 2017 paddling became a shortened season with so much smoke from the forest fires around the Southern Interior that practice times and Festivals were cancelled. The boat was pulled early due to low water in the Lake. We weren’t alone with all the issues this year, other teams also felt Mother Nature’s wrath.

A number of team members participated in the Relay for Life in June. They were joined by team survivors during the ‘Survivors Walk’ at the beginning of the Relay. A Pink Tea was held at the end of September to kick off October’s Breast Cancer Month. It was well attended with a number of unique prizes won by the guests. Carnations, with attached bookmarks, were handed out to women to remind them to book a mammogram. Thank you to members who volunteer at the mammogram clinics held throughout the year.
