Season Greetings from the PTCS Board members

 

As we move into a new year, it is always good to look back and reflect on 2016.  The Pulling Together Canoe Journey 2016, brought us to beautiful territories and a unique journey that will be remembered for years to come.  Take a moment to remember those times and reach out to a friend that you spent time with during that journey.

A special thanks to all of the Host communities: In-SHUCK-ch Nations – Lil’wat, Samahquam, Skatin, Xa’xtsa, and Sts’ailes for being a part of making 2016 a incredible PT canoe journey.

We have received updated information that the PTCJ 2017 is starting its planning and we know that it will be an incredible journey. We will provide updates as they become available.

The PTCS board members wish all the best to our partners, First Nation Communities  and Public Service agencies during this holiday season.

Happy Holidays,

The Pulling Together Canoe Society Board members

Rhiannon Bennett, President.

 

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.
