More than two dozen people participated in a weekly kayaking program last Thursday at Waterbury Reservoir designed specifically for athletes with disabilities, the last one of the year.

According to Pascale Savard of Green Mountain Adaptive sports, the rowers ranged in age from 10 to 89. Said Savard, “Every time I chat with them I wish I had a tape recorder to capture their feeling toward the program and how much they love it, how it gives them a chance to try something they never thought their could do: paddle independently and enjoy the beauty and wildlife of the Rez.”
