Hocking River Clean Up

June 16, 17 2006


----- : Friends of the Hocking River  elected official tour summary


        The following is a scan of the front page of the Logan Daily News, June 17th, 2006.  This is a report of FOHR's first ever "elected official's" tour, the day before our annual clean-up.

        Members and others escorted Logan City, Hocking County, and Falls Township officials from the 664 bridge (site of future canoe access, owned by HRC) to Kachelmacher Park (site of existing canoe access).  This stretch of the
forthcoming Hocking River Water Trail will be completed when the new ODOT 664 bridge is done - this fall.

        After our paddle, when we arrived at Kachelmacher Park, we were greeted by judges from American Blooms who were in town for Logan Blooms.  This was a great opportunity for Hocking River Advocates, Elected Officials, and Logan
Blooms to show off what we've all done, and what more we plan to do.

        Everyone agreed that a good time was had by all.  The event is well worth repeating.

        Thanks to John Wryst (HRC), Clyde Gosnell (AOA), Louise Warner (AOA), Steve Goodwin (AOA), Mike Fremont (Rivers Unlimited) for providing presentations to our guests.  Special thanks to Lew Barbini and the Hocking Valley Canoe
Livery for providing the canoes, paddles, pfds, shuttle service, and post trip meeting site.

Thanks again, everyone!
