Paddle - On July 20, 2019 FoFHP sponsored their Second Annual Canoe and Kayak Paddle. Participants departed from MYO Park in Millersburg and paddled south on the Susquehanna River to Fort Halifax Park. Everyone enjoyed a light picnic lunch at Fort Halifax Park after the trip. This event included over 30 kayakers, many who also participated last year. Thank you to our FoFHP member coordinator and volunteers, Bob S., Norma, Tiffany, and Jim, our SRTA volunteers, and community participants. It was a beautiful day for a Paddle! (July 2019)
