Local kayaker Jazmyne DeHollander practices yesterday at Tamihi Rapids. The Vancouver Kayak Club hosts it's annual fest Sunday, May 1.

 

ake Me To The River. The Denhollanders keep themselves busy on the Chilliwack River. Brenda DenHollander pans for gold nuggets, while her daughter, Jazmyne, chases gold medals in kayaking. 

 

In the photo on the right, Denhollander, who is a board member of the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence, washes out gravel in search of the colour. She says every now and then she gets a flake or two. She learned about gold panning in a UFV course and finds its a great pastime while her daughter practices.
