They help us keep everyone safe and having fun, and we

found out some good news too, one of our special

kayakers is paddling for National Gold in 2015

and we’d like to send him off with a nice little donation from

us too! He has to paddle the same gear as the other

racers…..but were donating some kayaker ka$h

to help offset the cost of travel and completion too!

GOOD LUCK from all your friends at KPC!!

PHOTO UPDATE!

Thankfully, but we did find some trash, it took a lot of heavy

lifting and hard work, and by the time we were done we

were flat out tired from the haul……
