Conservation Fisheries Fish Fest 2017
Hi Folks! Long time no blog! Yeah, there never seems to be time to do things like write blog posts, but, we do try! We just wanted to let you know about our upcoming fund raiser. We have been holding this event for a number of years now and it is always a fun time! As in past years, the event will be held on the beautiful River John's Island in Little River (near Rockford, Tennessee). This year, the date is Saturday, July 29th from around Noon to Dark. There is no rain date and short of high water in the river, we will have this rain or shine.
We will have food trucks for your feasting pleasure and beer for those consuming adults! We will also be entertained by the tallented Sarah Pirkle and Friends....and she has some tallented friends! As if this weren't enough....given good water conditions, we will have guided snorkeling, swimming, seining for fishes and other aquatic critters. Canoes and Kayaks are available from River John's Outfitters (contact them for more info).
All this is YOURS for the ridiculously low price of $10 (suggested donation) per person or $25 /family. Of course these are just suggested amounts. Remember folks, this IS a fundraiser, so more is always appreciated! We can take credit cards too!
Some more details.....
You can go to the Donate button on our web site if you would like to donate in advance. Simply put in a donation with a note about Little River Festival. We will have a list of everyone who donates ahead of time and check you in. This is a family friendly event with lots of kids. Don't forget to bring: mask, snorkel, water shoes, bathing suit/water friendly clothing, towel, easy-up/pop-up for shade, cooler, snacks, beverages of choice if not beer. No pets, please, by order of River John.
