sean Apr 9, 2017 - 4:56pm

High water levels and warm sunshine greeted the 195 entries in the Raisin River Canoe Race today. Among the changes for the 2017 race, the start line was moved 5 km downstream, and portaging was required in Martintown – both for safety reasons. 

As always, your dedicated Glengarry county information source, The Glengarry News, was there covering the event, with two reporters/photographers. We will have photos, results, and more in the next edition of the newspaper.
