Dragon boatload of support

Dragon boatload of support: Linda Stopa, President of the BraveHearts Dragon Boat team presented a cheque for $500 to Chris Aerots representing the Knights of Columbus Christmas Hamper Fund.  In keeping with the spirit of the season, on Dec. 22 team members will be helping the Knights of Columbus assemble the more than 1,200  hampers which are given each year to needy families. The BraveHearts Dragon Boat team holds a unique place in Canada since, when it was formed in 2006, it was the first mixed Dragon Boat of cancer survivors in the country.
