June Chicago Hub Event: Kayaking the Chicago River
by Sarah Ketvirtis, AIESEC Life - Chicago Hub Leader
In June alumni, AIESECers, and trainees gathered to go kayaking on the Chicago River, beginning at the Kingsbury Yacht Club. We spent a great afternoon learning and polishing our kayaking skills and river right-of-way knowledge, as well as learning fun facts about the buildings along the river, including the fact that the Chicago River's flow was reversed in 1900.
Afterwards we enjoyed dinner and drinks on the terrace at a local restaurant. Thanks for the fun!
