Dragon Boat Pumicestone Club has partnered with Invictus Australia to host the session for military veterans and their families from 8am to 10am.

Dragon Boat Pumicestone Club president Michelle Hanton said she was honoured to facilitate this opportunity in Moreton Bay.

“Our club already has veteran members who will each attest to the physical and mental benefits gained through this sport,” she said.

John Butler, who joined the army in 1974 and had numerous postings around Australia and overseas during 40 years of service, was involved in AFL before trying dragon boat racing.

John has not looked back since, as he said he enjoyed being part of the club.

Veteran and Family Dragon Boating Day will be free of charge, and attendees can also enjoy a complimentary morning tea after going out for a paddle.
