St. Charles Canoe Club Hosts Veterans Event

On September 13th, the St. Charles Canoe Club and St. Charles Rowing Club hosted a learn to row and paddle event for Wounded Warrior Project and Team Red, White & Blue veterans.  Member veterans and their families enjoyed a beautiful day on the Fox River in St Charles, learning to paddle canoes and kayaks as well as four- and eight-man rowing shells, after which the clubs served lunch to the participants.  This was the first time the event was hosted in St Charles, and both clubs said they are looking forward to doing this again next year.
