Wounded Warriors and the Dana Outrigger and Canoe Club

The Aloha spirit and volunteers with students from more than 13 different Orange County high schools attended the first annual Dana Outrigger and Canoe Club Wounded Warrior Veteran’s Day event on November 11th.

Aloha – a greeting of affection – “embodies the spirit of the day when we come together to thank everyone who’s served in the Armed Forces.” The DOCC wanted to do something special for the service men & woman who serve our country — and showed the community what the Aloha spirit is all about.

The Dana Point Harbor was filled with more than 14 outriggers decorated with tropical flowers, multiple stand-up paddleboards and plenty of help. A huge table with coffee, juice, bagels, fresh fruit and pastries were at hand for breakfast and tacos were later served for lunch.

Veterans and families from around the county were on hand to enjoy a day on the water and to experience the outriggers, standup paddleboards, food and fun.

A great day by all and a great day to honor our heroes.
