Eden and Levi Laliberte had painted the outdoor picnic table and turned it into a work of art, as well as bringing two board games.
Approximately 25 people came through the show, however due to the absolutely wonderful weather we noticed that several of those were actually on their way to enjoy the great outdoors.
It was very exciting to see that all the club’s water equipment was off the storage racks, on the beach or on the water. You can tell that people are keen to get in as much summer activity as possible.
