The Gig Harbor Midday Rotary Club hosted a Bar-B-Q dinner for the Gig Harbor Canoe and Kayak Club to welcome Athletes from Quebec and France in their first-ever Cultural Exchange. This exchange is reciprocal as our Gig Harbor Team was hosted in 2021 by the French Government. Coach Alyson Mrozinski is hopeful that these exchanges will help promote cultural understanding among our student-athletes.
The Gig Harbor Canoe and Kayak Racing Club have won National Racing Championships, and part of the exchange was competing with teams from France and Quebec in the Narrows Challenge, which was held on October 8th.
The Bar-B-Q dinner was organized by Carol Virak from the Gig Harbor Midday Rotary at the home of Gunda Meissner, with the food provided by Rotarians and Kayak team parents. The highlight of the evening was a bonfire and S’Mores.
Gig Harbor Midday Rotary takes great pride in our student programs, such as Interact and our Scholarship programs to encourage community involvement and philanthropy in our young people.
