On Saturday, July 30th, we hosted our 13th Annual Paddle Trek. The weather was perfect for the sixty-one enthusiastic paddlers and many volunteers and spectators who gathered early at Minnehonk Beach in Mount Vernon.
After a quick orientation, a fleet of colorful kayaks, canoes and a standup paddle board launched and headed down the lake to begin the 15-mile paddle, traveling down nine other bodies of water, ending in Wayne Village.
We are thankful for all those who participated in the Paddle Trek and especially grateful to our generous sponsors: Gold sponsor Hammond Lumber; Silver sponsors Longfellow’s Greenhouses, Lakepoint Real Estate, Winthrop Veterinary Hospital, Clark Marine, and Kennebec Cabin Company; and Bronze sponsors Vacasa and Dave’s Appliance. Other sponsors included the Douglas Team at Lakehome Group Real Estate, the Weathervane Restaurant and Lounge, the Olde Post Office Cafe, Tubby’s Ice Cream and the Fayette Fire Department.
