WECCC Paddlers Raise Over $3000 For Mission!

The Windsor/Essex County Canoe/Kayak Club is open to people and families of all ages and is a great way to socialize, stay fit and enjoy paddling some of our region’s fantastic waterways.  To find out more about joining this group, visit the WECCC Website or contact Steve Blais.
