The East­ern NL Dragon Boat­ing As­so­ci­a­tion held their first ever an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 24.

The group adopted by­laws, elected an ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee, and pre­sented re­ports on fundrais­ing and op­er­a­tions.

Hav­ing of­fi­cially ac­quired their own boat this year, the group con­tin­ues to fundraise to en­sure they have a place to store and use it, while also even­tu­ally plan­ning their own dragon boat­ing event in the Clarenville area.

And, as al­ways, they’re also look­ing to in­crease mem­ber­ship for breast can­cer sur­vivors and other sup­port­ers alike. They want to in­crease the size of the as­so­ci­a­tion go­ing for­ward.

If in­ter­ested, con­tact the group to be­come a team mem­ber or gen­eral mem­ber.

East­ern NL Dragon Boat­ing As­so­ci­a­tion co-chair Tina Fil­lier and chair Sherry War­ren were hon­oured by the group for their con­tri­bu­tions to dragon boat­ing in the area. For more pho­tos, in­clud­ing pre­sen­ta­tions to group spon­sors, go to www.thep­acket.ca.
