We'd like to introduce Project Canoe's artistic contributor, Julie Simoneau (featured below). Julie donated the beautiful image of her canoe painting (also featured below) to Project Canoe to use as our donor "thank you" card. Julie made the painting in the year 2000 to thank good friends she met while doing a youth exchange in Durham, Ontario. She learned a lot about life through her experience in Durham, and is happy to be able to further share her art with Project Canoe. Julie's wishes for Project Canoe? "Project Canoe is a wonderful project and I hope it has a long life."
