Church to raffle paddleboard at Peasant Market
MIDDLEBURY — Ever dream about walking on water? A standup paddleboard (SUP) can feel like that. The St. Stephen’s Boatwrights, a team led by Ed McGuire, spent the winter months crafting an SUP by hand. The SUP will be raffled off as part of the St. Stephen’s Peasant Market to be held on Saturday, July 6, on the green in Middlebury.
The Koholo design SUP is 12 feet-6 inches long and handcrafted from 1/4” Okume plywood. A special internal honeycomb design gives the board rigidity and lightness. Decorated with a Hawaiian print on the bow and stern, this SUP is stunning and unique. Also included with the SUP are a paddle and ankle cuff.
Tickets for the raffle are available at the church office and on the church website for $10 each or $50 for 6. Information about the July 6 St. Stephen’s Peasant Market
and the SUP are available online at ststephensmidd.org. Profits from Peasant Market fund the St. Stephen’s Monday community lunch and the church grant program that supports local nonprofit organizations. Last year, the church donated almost $20,000 to the community.
