These beautiful pieces from Leishman Pottery are available now at Christie's Clothing for Men, Women & Children. They are a fine collaboration of talents. Leishmans produced the pieces using the design from Collingwood Web Design and Loose Goose Canada and Christie's co-ordinated the effort. Thanks to all involved. The NLPS will receive $$ from each sale.

Annual General Meeting
Thanks to all those who attended our Annual General Meeting last week. Lots of positive feedback about our endeavours. Wonder what we'll have to report at AGM 2018? With sustained community support and hard work, the news should be good. To keep up to date, become a member. www.nlps.info

The Paddlethon is now in the NLPS history books. We would like to thank Henry Haiduk for bringing this fine idea to us and helping all along the way. Thanks also to Cathi Haiduk for supervising the short course; Brenda Schmidt-Stockman for all your lovely key chains; John Mifsud for patrolling the waters in his boat, making sure all were safe; Collingwood Home Hardware Building Centre for tents for the weekend; Loblaws for water; Joe's Music for the sound system; Martin Rydlo for including our event in Sidelaunch Days; Nick Brindisi for supervising the long course; Chris Huycke for providing us with the best laugh of the day. We appreciate all the paddlers who showed up and all the people who sponsored them. The NLPS does nothing without our exceptional volunteers. Our sincere thanks to Henry, Cathi, Justine, Heather, Steve, Marty, Brett, Linda, Derek, Sara, Steven, Nick. See you all next year?
