Dragonboaters hosting meet and greet

With paddling season upon us, the Cultus Lake based Spirit Abreast team invites newcomers to hang out at Decades March 16.

The Spirit Abreast Dragon Boating Team invites potential paddlers to a social event at the Decades Coffee Club.

Starting at 7 p.m. on March 16, team members will be there to answer questions and sign up new members.

The team consists of breast cancer survivors, providing a support system for cancer patients and their families.

The team firmly believes dragonboating helps with rehabilitation after surgery and lowers the risk of cancer reoccurrence.

They paddle at Cultus Lake.

They will debut a new racing shirt design this season that features original art and highlights the team’s long and rich history — their joys and sorrows paddling while battling a life-threatening disease.
