It is with much anticipated pleasure that the Community Dragon Boat equipment shed at the Salmon Wharf is now completed. We are grateful to have such a dedicated commercial/industrial community that generously donated their time and materials to make this shed become a reality. We will make good use of it along with our fellow dragon boat teams - Grey Grebes and Shuswap Association for Rowing and Paddling.
We wish to thank the following sponsors:
Shuswap Community Foundation, City of Salmon Arm, Hindbo Construction, Meyer Designs Ltd, Home Building Center, Standard Roofing (2016) Ltd, Salmon Arm Window and Door, Salmon Arm Ready Mix and Perfect Choice Painters.
This community project started with 4 executive members from the Friends Abreast team in July 2021. On November 5 the shed was placed and is now the home for dragon boat equipment. Hindbo Construction was the key player in rounding up the commercial sponsors to donate their time and materials. Friends Abreast team had the vision and Hindbo Construction made it happen. We also want to recognize Shuswap Community Foundation for awarding us with a grant to cover some of the costs and the City of Salmon Arm for supporting our project.
We appreciate all of the above sponsors for their dedication to help a worthy community project. Well done Salmon Arm.
