Paddling Across Rhode Island–the true adventures of trekking the waterways of the smallest state.
After a disastrous attempt in 2013 in which he damaged his boat and could have lost his life, Chuck Horbert and three other companions successfully completed the trip in 2014 and became the first paddlers to ever paddle the length of Rhode Island. They paddled north to south in July of 2014, from Woonsocket to Westerly, using a primarily inland route, camping along the way. Chuck used the journey to highlight recreational opportunities of the State’s rivers, holding PR events with watershed councils, youth groups and other organizations to highlight the good work they do to promote access and to reconnect their communities to the rivers that flow through them. Come learn about canoe camping as you relive the trip with him during a slide show of their historic adventure.
Cody the Cloud Book Reading
Among a big, white fluffy crowd
Lived the tiny Cody the Cloud.
Though he floated high and free,
Cody never felt happy.
When Cody meets the boy on Earth
They learn the value of self-worth.
Don’t let the doubt of others win,
To make a difference, first look within.
