    Come on out on May 21st to help with the RPPC clean-up, and plan to come out either on the Odd or Even Tuesday for the summer to help fellow members, and members of the public to access our Paddling Centre and to have a fine informal introduction to canoeing, kayaking or SUP Paddling.  We ask that volunteers try to arrive by about 6:45 PM evenings and stay as long as you can.  We generally try to wrap-up by 9:00 PM, earlier in the late summer.
