I’m proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Vatten Paddlar canoe and kayak race, which will be held July 6 on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes in Barnes, Wisconsin. I’m grateful for this opportunity to support our local community, and also to spread the word about the natural beauty of the lakes and rivers in this part of northwest Wisconsin.
The race has two events, a 10 mile race and a 5 mile race—plus various divisions within each race. There are prizes in each division, plus lots of door prizes. To learn more about the race, visit www.vattenpaddlar.com.
