I would like to pass this along... the recreation and paddling community is going to honor Okie at Tempe Town Lake at 5:30PM Tuesday night 4/23. Bring your paddlecraft to the Tempe Town Lake Marina and paddle out with us to honor Okie under the Mill Ave. bridge. Bring flowers if you wish.

    Terry, Thanks for letting us know about this. Disappointing turnout by the kayaking community.

    Okie is Joseph O’Connor, a good friend of the paddling community, and the person who was in charge of overseeing the paddling and rowing sports on Tempe Town Lake. Saddly he passed away on April 20th due to a boating accident. Friends and people he touched on his many teams will be honoring a good man. Come join us to celebrate the life of someone who really worked hard for water sports in Arizona.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
