The fifth annual Canoe Regatta promises lots of fun

The fifth annual Clearwater Canoe Regatta is happening Sep. 6 and 7

Editor, The Times:

Save the date! The fifth annual Clearwater Canoe Regatta is happening Sep. 6 and 7. There is a full lineup of events and activities that are sure to engage everyone from the active participant to the supportive spectator.

It’s all about community this year and we’re super excited to have the CSS Student Council and Grad 2014 as our key event coordinators.

Please take note of a few special community moments. On Friday, Sept. 6 at 6.30 p.m. we will be having the Regatta Golden Moments Award. This event is to honor long time community members who have excelled in their volunteer commitments to the community.

On Saturday, Aug. 7 at 4 p.m, we are extending a round of applause and acknowledgement to our many community volunteers. We are looking for nominations. If you have a community superstar in mind, please email your nomination to: drop it off at the District of Clearwater office. Deadline is Friday, Aug. 30.

Additionally, the Regatta welcomes the North Thompson Valley Hospice House Society! Every year a great group of people grab their softest cycle seat and ride to raise money to build a Hospice House in our valley. This year, the bikers will ring the bell of accomplishment at the Regatta! Each person is pledging a minimum of $100 to participate and, quite frankly, that deserves a cheer all on its own!

We’re also spreading the love and doing a 50/50 draw, with all proceeds going to the hospice house society.

On Saturday, the Skating Club will be doing the day time concession and the Clearwater Fire Department will host the beach dinner. Rotary is once again wowing us with their help with the Rotary Regatta Relay Challenge. If 15 teams enter the event, Insight Tire is pledging Rotary $200!

Come on out for a super fun weekend! There is tons to do and plenty of action to cheer for. Thank you to all of our sponsors who help make this a fabulous community event!
