The Official Launch of the new Obwód Pomorze canoes

On a beautiful winters Sunday afternoon the scouting family of Obwód Pomorze” gathered by the banks of the Brisbane River to celebrate a very special event, the naming and blessing of six new brilliant blue canoes. The canoes with life-jackets, paddles and trailer were donated to Hufiec Harcerzy and Harcerek by the hardworking and generous KPH committee. The afternoon started with the blessing of the canoes by Father phm Ks Andrzej Kolaczkowski. Magda Myszkowska as patron of the new canoes then officially announced the name of each canoe with the following dedication “Sail the rivers and lakes in the name of Polish Scouting , bring that glory to our organization. I give officially name you Hel, Kołobrzeg, Szczecin, Świnoujście, Gdańsk, Gdynia,”.

With the ceremony over the rest of the afternoon was spent enjoying the lunch provided by KPH, playing, and of course testing out our fabulous new canoes! Everyone agreed that the canoes were a great addition to the Obwod and that they will get a lot of use for many years to come! The canoes and trailer will now be housed in a new shed donated and built by SPK kolo nr 8 on their property in Capalaba.

The instructors of Hufiec Pomorze would like to thank KPH, SPK and all that came on Sunday for making all of this possible.
