DAY 5 - Journal Entry:
August 11, 2004
Michelle Vanden Tillaart, K4C Kayaker
After a hard day on the water
the kayakers were to bed early, only to be abruptly
awaken by fighting raccoons making unearthly schreeches.
We were on the water early
for a long day, 38 km in total. A long haul to
lunch, yet all done in high spirits made the time
go by quickly.
Nathanial, age 3, a family
friend of one the K4C members, almost brought
tears to some eyes after he donated all of his
coins, down to the last penny, from his own personal
piggy bank. We all give great thanks to him!
The K4C team was greeted by
many friends and family in Merrickville, and all
were exceedingly happy to see food, tents and
Thanks to Jonsson's Independent
for a successful BBQ that helped raise a great
amount of money that will surely benefit the total
amount in the end!
Day #5, another success!
