Day on the Water!

We would like to invite your youth to come attend. It's only $10 for a day of sailing, canoeing, rowing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and more! Even if you haven't done it before, it's a great place to learn.

The event takes place at Lake Washington in West Sacramento. $10 cost covers lunch and a snack. More details are included on the flyer attached. Registration can be found by clicking this link. Be sure to register by May 23rd.
