Celebrating Love: a challenge to the myth of the "divorce boat"




After paddling together for several seasons...two of our very own RA members have proven this adage can be conquered with the fun-loving spirit of adventure, teamwork, and love. Reversing the "divorce boat" trend - they tied the knot last weekend at Esprit on the Ottawa River...where they first met at an RACCC fall festival. Congratulations to the happy couple!
