Paddle to the Symphony 2015 and HI/AYH Social Gathering

Paddle to the Symphony is a Celebration of Southeast Michigan outdoor groups and a Reunion for Hostelling International members – the founders of the event. This annual tradition is open to HI-USA members (past, present, & future), SOLAR members and any group, club or individual. Anyone and everyone is welcome.

This year’s Paddle to the Symphony will be Saturday, July 11, 2015. SOLAR is collaborating with Heavner Canoe and several Meetup Groups to provide a fun evening on the water while enjoying the sounds of the Michigan Philharmonic. Starts at 6:00 p.m. (must arrive by 7:00 p.m.) and runs to 10:00 p.m. Meet at Kensington Metro Park in Milford, Michigan at the shoreline (look for the canoes) near the North Martindale Picnic Shelter.

On the same day, BEFORE the paddle, we are also hosting a social gathering for past, present, and future HI members. This is also a reunion for AYH members and anyone associated with Hostelling in Michigan. Starts at 2:00 p.m. and runs to 6:00 p.m. More information available on our News Page.

Come to one or both events on July 11, 2015. Complimentary shuttles will be available for those attending the afternoon social and evening paddle. Follow the links above for more details on each event.
