Paddle-the-Grand took place on Saturday, May 10. Although the weather was fair, it turned out to be the most challenging paddle yet! A strong headwind greeted us as we launched into the river. Some canoes were actually pushed upstream by the gusts! Once we found more sheltered areas it was much easier to navigate the river. Many canoes took one hour longer than usual to reach the destination at Kiwanis Park!
Despite difficult paddling, we were successful in raising over $34,000 for Silver Lake! Thank you to all of the generous individuals from the Rockway congregation who paddled and/or donated to this fun family event. This year we had 28 participants, in nine canoes, from Rockway Church. We couldn’t do it without you!
