We have still been at it. Progress on making this place a suitable riverfront continues. There has been a steady flow of volunteers. Some come every day and put some hours in. The hard volunteer work is reaping rewards. Last night three different groups of folks were on the Bank fishing. I didn't get the names of the city crew but I will get to it. We had some new volunteers this week as well. I will save the list of volunteers to next week. I want to fill you in on a few things, The businesses have been pitching in as well. Mike Gore's Towing and Autobody has been cleaning up. Advance Auto and Foxes photo have been doing their part as well. It is good to see the community g0to work like this. The main problem I sited last week about the refuse left behind from Mountaineer Sanitation is beginning to be addressed. The DEP stepped in and Mayor Mathews helped broker a plan between the principles to deal with the problem. The work began yesterday. We continue to bring debris out of the river. Folks have to get the mindset that this type of littering must stop. My feeling is that the volunteers who have worked on this project will have their eyes out, watching to see if someone trashes the place. If someone trashes the place they will be asked to stop doing it. Hopefully this will end. We have placed three 55 Gallon Barrels for trash to be placed in. Please pitch in. We would do well to take a page from the White Water Rafting procedure. When you use the river and its bank you always take your own trash away. But you don't stop there. You look for another piece of leftover trash and you leave the riverbank cleaner then it was when you came. Drainage and raking the beach continues. We still are looking for some fill for a low area. "Rod Dog" would work. There will be some sand bags in place until the final drainage work is complete. It takes time. This coming weekend the Water location. This part of the'Water Festival will be on the river. There will be a Friday night Bonfire as well. Folk I have heard it said that the Water Festival was more fun in the old days. Well, lets all get together and make it like the fun of old. Start with some fellowship along the bank and share some of your memories. We can put some of the ideas in next years Water Festival. We will tell you about some ideas we have been kicking around.
