Heroes On the Water

My two eldest kids and I were greatly blessed today while taking part in Heroes on the Water at Lodi Lake.  
It was an honor to help serve our veterans. Heroes on the Water "helps wounded warriors relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate with society through kayak fishing and the outdoors." You can find out more about the organization by clicking the link above. Today's event was put on by Norcal Kayak Anglers, Headwaters Kayak Shop and Waste Management. The American Legion cooked a wonderful breakfast for everyone and the VFW BBQ'd some great hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch. Explore SUP, Headwaters,  and members of Lodi Paddle Club provided over 70 boats and paddleboards for the vets to use. It was wonderful to see so many people volunteer their time for such a worthy cause!
