EVENTS

HOPE for tomorROW

This all-inclusive row was the inspiration of Paul's dear friend Paige Niarchos. Our partners at Lake Champlain Maritime Museum graciously accepted the challenge. Our first event in 2019 was such a success, we plan to make it an annual affair!


NO experience is required for this fun row to New York - about 2 miles round trip.  LCMM provides 4-oar and 6-oar pilot gigs and life jackets. Each gig is assigned an experienced rower as coxswain. Participants can register individually or as a team.


There are two round-trip rowing sessions with lunch, prizes, games, T-shirts, goody bags... truly a fun-packed day!!  


Save-the-Date 2020: TBD

Annual G.H.O.S.T. walk

The first annual ghost walk happened two days after Paul's death. Community came together in grief and in love and in hope and in light to walk and to connect.  We were so moved, we have made this an annual event.  In early October, we gather on the baseball field at CVUHS and walk a lit path together.  


Watch this site and our facebook page for the 2020 event date.
