Due to the ongoing concerns around COVID-19, Leonardtown Rotary has canceled the 4th annual Paddle for Heroes scheduled for Saturday, June 13, on beautiful Breton Bay.

We deeply regret the need to cancel because the event is well-attended and a fun draw at the Wharf, and especially because the funds raised provide scholarships for our County’s first responders, who have been so diligent in their support of our community in this most difficult time. We appreciate the support of this year’s sponsors: Cedar Point FCU, Brinsfield Funeral Home, Leonardtown Chevy, SMECO, and Tom Hodges Auto.

We look forward to holding this event next year, allowing paddling for our heroes and support of first responders. May it be a better year!

Michael Blackwell, President, Leonardtown Rotary
