APE’s Caring Christmas Project

The APE’s are joining together to spread some Christmas cheer this year by helping a local family in need.  The family recently (11/17/17) suffered the death of the father/husband.  He was the sole breadwinner for the surviving family.  The mother has been a stay at home mom taking care of their youngest boy who has a long term illness.  The mother has 4 children: 14 year old girl, 10 year old boy, 5 year old girl and 3 year old boy.  The mother will have no financial means to make Christmas happen for the family this year in trying to cover the family budget and funeral expenses for the husband/father. 

We APE’s want to make sure this family experiences the joy of Christmas again!  We are hosting a fundraising campaign from (11/20/2017-12/08/2017) to purchase Christmas gifts for this family on our APE’s PayPal website:

http://www.riverapes.org/paypal-1.html

 

 

Simply enter your name in the box provided and select the “APE’s Caring Christmas Project” from the dropdown menu and hit the “Pay Now” button.  PayPal will walk you through the rest of the steps to submit your contribution of any amount.  Your caring financial support will be the key to the project realization.

Funds received for the project will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for the children and mother.  If we get enough funds we may also try to provide Christmas Dinner for the family.  We have already compiled a list of clothing sizes and interests of the children for the gift purchases.

Cold Weather Paddling CLINIC at Overmountain Outdoors

Overmountain Outdoors Special Event!

Do you love paddling in the summer and want to keep it going in the winter? But you’re not too sure what it takes to do it safely?  Overmountain Outdoors and Wesley R. Bradley are teaming up to offer a FREE clinic on how to properly outfit yourself for cold water & winter paddling.  Join us on Tuesday, November 21st, 2017 at Overmountain Outdoors and learn how to dress for paddling success in cold weather!  Clinic starts at 6:00 – 7:30 P.M.

Many paddlers have the misconception that after the leaves fall off the trees, that boats get stored till the flowers come back out.  The fact of the matter is in the southeast winter and early spring host some of our area’s best paddling, especially in whitewater!

We will be showcasing many products from Immersion Research & Kokatat during the clinic.  We will give tips and tricks on proper use and care of many products you can use to keep you toasty warm in the cold weather.

You may want to bring your own folding chair to the clinic, because seating is limited at the store.
