Editor, The Times:
Watch out! It’s back! Clearwater Canoe Regatta 2011 is coming soon. Save the dates for Friday, Sept. 9 and Saturday, Sept. 10. Keep an eye out on www.clearwatercanoeregatta.com for all the events and activities.
Although there will be plenty of fun stuff at the Regatta, the one event that we are very pleased to offer again is the Golden Gal Award. This award is to honor a pioneer woman who has excelled in her volunteer contribution to the community. Century 21 Rison Realty is sponsoring it. Nominations are being accepted until Wednesday, Aug. 31 at noon. The award will be presented at 6.30 at Dutch Lake on Friday, Sept. 9. If you have someone in mind, please submit a brief summary of why your candidate should be chosen as the 2011 Regatta Golden Gal.
Email, mail or drop off your nominations to: Shelley Sim, regatta coordinator c/o District of Clearwater, Box 157, Clearwater, BC V0E 1N0 or firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 250 674 3286
Our community has been very fortunate to have several women volunteer their time and this part of the regatta is to pay tribute to their efforts and their legacy.
We look forward to receiving input from the community.
