Paddle Now, Chores Later
6:00 pm, Tuesday, September 24: Doc Fletcher; Paddle Now, Chores Later

Join us as PBS-featured author and life-long Michigan resident Doc Fletcher presents his
hour-long 2013 canoeing and kayaking program, "Paddle Now. Chores Later". Among the
rivers featured will be the Pere Marquette, the subject of Doc's new book (Jan 2013 pub-
lication by Arbutus Press). The program will also focus on the U.P.'s Two Hearted River,
a gorgeous stream that flows into Lake Superior, and how it was impacted by - and is
recovering from - the 3rd largest fire in Michigan's history this past May-June.
You don't have to be a paddling enthusiast to enjoy the program, but you may become
one by the time the evening ends.
At the end of Doc's time with us, a free drawing will be held and one person will win a gift
certificate good for a free canoe or kayak day trip. The use of the boats and drop-offs/pick-
ups are donated by liveries (canoe/kayak rentals) in towns across Michigan. The trip winner
will be drawn at random from the other half of tickets handed out to attendees as they arrive
for the program. Canoe/kayak livery brochures & state maps will be made available to assist
program attendees in planning river trips. For those interested, Doc will sign and sell copies
of his 5 published books on canoeing and kayaking in Michigan and Wisconsin.

This event will be held at the Lakeshore Museum Center.
