Virtual Paddle Out for Pat Cunneen WNP Event

Jul 25, 2023 6:00pm-7:00pm (Tuesday)

Western Neighborhoods Project is staging a Virtual Paddle Out in honor of a local legend who recently passed away: Pat Cunneen

Pat was born in San Francisco and raised in the Sunset District, before leaving to serve in the U.S. Coast Guard and later the Daly City Fire Department. He was passionate about sports and outdoor activities, was a regular at Kelly’s Cove, and was a member of local institutions such as the South End Rowing Club and the Pamakid Running Club (founded by his late wife, Betty). Pat was also an artist, and co-authored the book "South End: Sport and Community at the Dock of the Bay" with Robert Barde.

Please join us on Tuesday, July 25th at 6:00pm; we'll share a brief biography of Pat and then give attendees the mic at the Zoom meeting to share their memories of this special member of our community. The entire program will be recorded and serve as an episode of the WNP podcast, "Outside Lands San Francisco," which will air on Saturday, July 29th.

This event is free but donations to cover recording costs are appreciated. This program is online only; please register through Eventbrite to receive the super-secret Zoom link.
