On Saturday July 24th and again on Saturday August 7th we took St. Peter's Teen Center on canoe trips to the Nashua River in Groton, MA.
We had excellent weather for both trips, and a bunch of great new volunteers.
For August 7th, I'd like to thank Tara for a great job leading the trip, new volunteers Jeni Kennedy and Elizabeth Werbe, along with returning volunteers Beth, Kristen, and Chris.
The August trip was a little more challenging because we found out the week before that we were no longer able to use the Groton dock for swimming. We had a hard time finding a flat and sandy spot that was large enough for our group, but eventually made something work along the bank. Although the group made the best of it and did not complain, it was not ideal, and I'm not sure I'd recommend it for future trips unless it's just a paddling trip without swimming.
