THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENTAL ALLIANCE (SEA)
What an amazing experience on Turning the Tide 2014! A big thank you to all the organizers, paddlers, swimmers, sailors, campers and day-trippers, and a huge thanks to our generous hosts on Pender and Salt Spring islands, particularly Ron and Lou Henshaw, Misty MacDuffee and friends on Pender Island and Sandra Leckie, Phil Vernon and friends on Salt Spring Island! We look forward to local events this year and another major multi-day trip in 2015.
PLEASE send all photos and video from this year’s paddle and community gatherings to firstname.lastname@example.org! We are compiling the material for archival purposes and for sharing on social media, and the highlights will be incorporated by our filmmakers into short clips as well as the longer documentary. Stay tuned for the launch in Victoria and on the islands! Also, note that large audiovisual files can be uploaded to Dropbox or YouSendIt with the link sent to the email address above.
THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THIS UNIQUE, FUN AND IMPORTANT MOVEMENT!
