Paddle Update

DERP has had to cancel this year's paddle due to Covid-19.   

Its rescheduled to Saturday, June 5, 2021.  It will be the 10th anniversary and promises to be a hoot. 

There will be alligators, sharks, and maybe even a whale!  Come see the pristine beauty of Fishing Creek and be part of Enfield's renaissance.

DERP members will paddle this year in a very small and socially distanced group to clean the creek as we always do before the paddle.  Anyone wishing to do this must be a paid DERP member and  have their own kayak, bring one really big garbage bag to capture anything that we may see while floating and bring your lunch. 

Remember if you are a fisherman, please bring your fishing line out of the creek area and its banks when you leave.  Help keep fishing creek clean and safe for the wild birds, deer and our family dogs who like to take a swim.

We are accepting sponsorships now for next year's 10th anniversary.  If you would like your company's logo on the back of our baseball caps, the sponsorship will cost $1000, send in your logo to Lori Clay, Treasurer c/o Halifax Mutual Insurance, Enfield.

Thank you everyone for hanging in there during this strange and surreal time.  DERP continues to work for you in Enfield!
