ASCEND GREATER ATLANTA INVITES YOU TO
Ascend Greater Atlanta is seeking out paddlers to participate in Atlanta’s 2017 Dragon Boat Festival. At least 20 paddlers and one steersperson are needed to race a dragon boat representing Ascend. Ascend members and their spouses/significant others and friends are welcome to join the team. This is a great opportunity to share Ascend team spirit in the local community; to network with people internally and externally; to enjoy exciting and fun outdoor activities with colleagues, friends and family members and to learn about Chinese culture (there is a beautiful legend behind the Dragon Boat Racing tradition!).
