Cranberry Bog Paddle Fest

Our first Cranberry Bog Paddle Fest was held on Sunday, October 12, 2014. Participants navigated from the North Bank to Cranberry Bog in their Canoes or Kayaks. The Society hopes to make this colorful fest an annual fall event. Help us get the word out to the many boaters interested in paddle fest events. It is a growing and very popular sport.

Volunteering isn't about how much time you give, it is about how you feel about where you live and the people that are a part of your community. It is about laughter and the spirit of human kindness.
