Message From The Editor

Volunteers are the Bomb

The CPS said it perfectly below when they wrote "Volunteers are the roots of strong communities". We all have our different communities large and small; our family, our workspace, our town or city…likely we spend some time volunteering our time as well as some time making use of another's time. At Canadian Yachting we are continually grateful for the people who volunteer their valuable time to us and to the boating family in so many different ways. If you notice someone giving of their own time this week and any week, take a moment to recognize their contribution. Valuing the work of another goes an exponentially long way towards fostering a strong community.

After six years of extremely cheerful telephone greetings and a can-do attitude toward any task that cannot be matched, Lynn retired from Kerrwil Publications on April 1st. Read More
