Islanders take a Canoeing Mini-Vacation
by David Winer
Sycamore Islander, September 2001
Last year we described in the Islander a trip to the Adirondacks for the annual Wooden Canoe Heritage Association's "Assembly" at Paul Smiths College. This year the same four of us (Jane and I, and Jane and Bill Hill) attended the same affair, but this time in the Finger Lakes area of New York, staying at Keuka College. There was considerable concern over the new venue... that it might not work well for the hundreds of wooden canoe enthusiasts. But as it turned out, we needn't have worried.

and history page in the bottom of each canoe. Many discussions ensue among owners and admirers.
