Big Canoe – Chief Pinesi Day / Work Party
ONEC is proud to support the Chief Pinesi Day celebrations organised by Kichi Sibi Trails on July 1st in New Edinburgh by lending some of our traditional big canoes. This event will be celebrating the indigenous history of the area and will include short paddles on the Rideau River open to the public.
To make sure the ONEC canoes are in the best shape possible for the day, we need to inspect them and varnish the gunwales, so we are holding a work party to work on the canoes on Tuesday 14 June (from 4pm to 6pm and from 7pm to 9pm). So if you are interested in helping work on the canoes or interested in paddling them on July 1st, please RSVP at https://www.onec.ca/event-details/big-canoe-work-party
