Paddle for a Cure! Another great community event in Northeast CT ~ Sunday, June 9th, 2013

As a kid I wasn't fond of "paddling" because that is usually what happened when you were naughty!

I only remember getting paddled once... when I was pretty young, like under the age of 5.

I stood up in the pew at church and kept inching away from my mother. She gave me fair warning, but on her last request for me to sit down, I boldly yelled "NO" at the top of my lungs. So, ok, I deserved that paddling and have behaved since then (....for the most part).

Today's paddling is a lot more fun! People are canoeing and kayaking all over the place, and a great event is coming up in Sunday, June 9th - Starting at 10am at Riverside Park - Greenway Drive. Brooklyn, CT 06239. This is right behind Johnny's Pizza if you are not familiar with the area.

The event is the Paddle for a Cure. (You can "like" the Paddle on facebook and find out lots more). 

The funds raised will stay local at Day Kimball Hospital's Oncology Department.

I am a Putnamaniac that loves the local support shown at events like the Paddle for a Cure!
