Pulling Together Canoe Journey 2015

The final circle concluded early into the morning, ending a memorable journey for so many.  This year provided some different challenges for our Pulling Together Canoe families, including heat and smoke.  This year’s Planning Committee and their Safety Team, managed to make changes to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey.

There has been a flickr group for those of you that want to share your pictures.  Click here for Flickr Account

Additionally we have our Facebook Pulling Together Canoe group Click here for Facebook Group

We wish all of those you travelling home a safe journey.  And agreed that the end came too quickly, but our PTCS has already begun the work with our next year’s Planning Committee.

Thanks to all who make this happen, 2015 Pulling Together Canoe Planning Committee, CN Rail, Semiahmoo First Nation, and Surrey RCMP.  More acknowledgements and thank you’s will be made in the coming few days.
