WCHASome 250 new and vintage canoes will be on display at the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association’s annual assembly at Paul Smith’s College on Lower St. Regis Lake this week.

More than four hundred wooden-canoe aficionados are expected to attend the assembly, which began today and will last through Sunday. The general public is welcome to visit. One event of note: on Friday evening, starting at 6:45, there will be a parade of wooden boats on Lower St. Regis.
