Without her, there would not be two dragon boats residing at Lake Fairview, Orlando. Without her, we would not have Orlando Dragon Boat Club which now serves hundreds of paddlers in Orlando. Harriett Lake, a well-known philanthropy in Orlando generous donated two dragon boats to Women Playing For T.I.M.E.® and funded the development of a dragon boat program in Central Florida a year ago. On Aug 25th, Orlando Health Foundation invited the community to honor her contributions and officially welcome these two dragon boats which are going to bring a new excitement and hottest water spot to Central Florida.
