Volunteer of the Day –
Clifton Cann (Chinook Racing Canoe Club)

Clifton is the volunteer backbone of Chinook, quietly working away whether on the website, registrations, submissions, invoices and/or bookkeeping. He keeps the admin-end of the club running smoothly and up-to-date. Because of his quiet demeanor working in "the background" the volume of his contribution isn’t as readily noticeable. We wouldn’t be here without him!
Thank you so much for your hard work, Clifton! A Panago Pizza gift certificate will be mailed to you shortly.
