Essex Community Services Spring Paddle Party a big hit



by Sylene Argent

Area residents were invited to celebrate the warmer weather at the Essex Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion (Branch 201) last Tuesday evening as volunteers and staff with Essex Community Services hosted its fourth annual Spring Paddle Party.

  The event provided attendees with a chance to not only have fun, but to help support the local organization that provides foot care clinics, friendly visits and reassurance, and a transportation program to those within the community that need them.

  “We are grateful for the support, especially with how tough things have been,” Stack noted. Essex Community Services has had its struggles over the past few years trying to maintain its vehicle fleet, and has been hit with some unexpected costs.

Funds raised at the Spring Paddle Party will help Essex Community Services be able to continue to offer its programs and services to those who need them.

  Kelly Stack, Executive Director of Essex Community Services was grateful for the support.

  Vendors at the event generously donated an item for the paddle party.

  “This is just a fun night. We are beyond appreciative to the vendors for their support,” Stack said.

  Essex Community Services will host its sixth annual Wine Tour and Poker Run next. To learn more, visit the organizations Facebook page or log onto: essexcs.on.ca.
