On Saturday June 6th Jenn and I had the pleasure of celebrating our beautiful Bonnechere River!
I participate in a mass paddle from Wilber Lake to Eganville, and Jenn was waiting on shore to capture some great photos of the group as we arrived back and of all the events on shore. The event was organized by Mark Jones and he did a tremendous job organizing such a great day!
After registering in the morning canoes and kayaks were transport to Wilber Lake, Paddlers boarded the bus at the Eganville Arena where the paddlers met to start our day. The group outing was blessed with a few words and song by Mr. Ross and then it was time to take to the water. According to Mr. Jones this was the best attended paddle to date.
Jean Brereton`s Drumming Circle greeted the paddlers as they arrived back at the public beach in Eganville. Once on shore everyone was able to enjoy some great local music and some fresh, locally produced food was available from the Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative.
There are several more Celebrate Our River Events and Paddles planned for spring and summer 2015.
