Vegreville Town Council Embarks on Maiden ‘Paddle Under the Pysanka’ Voyage

Members of Town Council were among the first to test the waters aboard the new paddle boats at Vegreville Elks/Kinsmen Park.

Council donned their lifejackets ahead of the leisurely cruise on Elks Pond on Tuesday, June 22.

“The paddleboats are a fantastic addition to the park that I’m sure will be enjoyed by both residents and visitors to Vegreville,” Tim MacPhee, Mayor, Town of Vegreville said. “We’re tremendously fortunate to have such a vibrant space in our community and I’m thrilled that we continue to find ways to enhance it. I’d also like to thank the Vegreville Elks Club for their dedicated contributions to the pond throughout the years. These boats will only enhance what was already a beautiful feature.”

Much like the current ‘Borrow-A-Bike’ initiative, paddle boats are available at no charge, ensuring residents and visitors can now both peddle and paddle under the Pysanka.
