Nevah Surrendah


It is with great honor and pride to announce "Nevah Surrendah" is now making her home at Great River. For those that don't know, a dear friend, Paul Green, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease about 20 years ago around the age of 80. Determined not to be beaten by the disease, Paul took up rowing, learning Japanese, and Caligraphy. Paul and I spent many afternoons working on his rowing. He competed every year and was the first to compete at Masters Nationals as the oldest competitor of 93 years. Paul is a phenomenal individual and we treasure his boat as an example of ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU WANT IT BAD ENOUGH Thank you Paul, we will take the best care of her
