You can help during the 2013 Canoe Journey/Paddle to Quinault

July 17th, 2013 at Wed, 17th, 2013 at 10:10 am by rwalker

Suquamish Olalla Neighbors is extending an invitation to the community to be a part of the 2013 Canoe Journey/Paddle to Quinault:

The Suquamish Tribe is inviting the larger community to bring desserts July 19 for the hosting of canoe families as part of the annual Canoe Journey. Please bring a dessert of any kind (large quantities are good!) to the House of Awakened Culture in downtown Suquamish between 4:30 and 6 p.m. on Friday. If you get there early, you can see the canoes pull in!

Please spread the word!

Also, the Quinault Nation is “desperately seeking volunteers” to help with hosting the thousands of people who will arrive on Aug. 1. The following link directs you to the volunteer page from the Canoe Journey website:

The Quinault Nation is also seeking the use of shuttle buses to meet their transportation needs during the Journey. If you have one that is available to loan, please let them know.

Thanks for helping out. Please spread the word!
