Name: Lou Marcel Canoe Race
Date: June 3, 2017
Event Description:

The Lou Marcel Canoe Race is a yearly tradition in Massachusetts.  The Crescent Yacht Club is in our 38th year of giving back to our community.  We have supported many great charities throughout the years, but we are extremely excited about the new relationship between the Crescent Yacht Club and the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center.  

The Veterans Northeast Outreach Center is a private non-profit organization serving the Greater Merrimack Valley. Their mission is to provide the highest quality of services to assist, support and advocate for Veterans and their families.   

The Outreach Center, their keystone program, has been in continuous operation since 1985. Established in Lawrence, the Center started as a storefront operation, staffed largely by volunteers, to provide support and advocacy to Vietnam Veterans. Through the years, the focus of the Center has expanded to accommodate over 36,000 Veterans in our region who are eligible for care. We provide a continuum of care to Veterans, their families, from the very basic food and shelter needs to advocacy, information, referral, career, and education services.

The Center also sponsors a number of outreach initiatives to senior citizens, young people and families of Veterans. The Center is funded, in part, through contracts with Department of Veterans Affairs, Mass. Department of Veterans Services, US Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, and private donations.
