Maskwa 2015 Spring Work Party : DATE - Saturday May 23rd : TIME - Beginning at 9:00 am

The ice has melted and it finally looks like spring the last couple weeks...and that usually means its time for the annual Maskwa clean up.  
We will officially kick off the upcoming paddling season next Saturday, May 23rd. The boom truck will be on site to allow us to put the docks back in the water, and we will prepare the grounds for the season ahead. Many hands make light work.

We will be looking for volunteers to bring some equipment as well (ie. hammers, rakes, shovels, etc.) but will provide details in the coming days.
