A dragon boat, kayaks and canoes gracefully slid atop Wintersmith Lake in Ada during a special program hosted by the Chickasaw Nation Riversport Youth Canoe/Kayak League. This marked the first time in approximately 20 years such an event was conducted on the local lake. 

Approximately 100 individuals took part in the program which was two years in the making through cooperative efforts with the city of Ada.
