Kayak Trip  - August 26th

Youth Ministry sponsored a Kayaking event at Narrow River Kayaks located at 94 Middlebridge Road, Narragansett, RI 02882. The event was attended by 10 members of our Compass community.  We kayaked for a few hours to the local beach where they had a lunch on the beach and swam.  A great time was had by all.
