FLOTILLA 2019

August 17, 2019 - a picture-perfect day for a flotilla. Build it and they will come - and they did. This year we had over 50 participants in canoes and kayaks - more than ever before.

Registering - how many go out? Do the same number come back in?

The ducks had minds of their own and didn’t want to be caught. But our crew, Kayla and Catlin, were up to the job.
