The Friends are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2016 Kayak Raffle.
Tim Berry, from Owosso, is the proud owner of the cherry red Sojourn 134 Hurricane kayak. Mr Berry bought the winning raffle ticket from Bob Dumond, a gentleman who seems to be a good luck charm himself. For the second year in a row, Bob sold the winning ticket.
Cory Brant from Ann Arbor won Second Prize, which was $150 in cash.
Chris Barrette -- all the way from Georgia -- won Third Prize, which was a lovely wine basket.
Thank you to everyone that participated in this exciting raffle. Funds generated by the raffle will be used by the Friends to support water quality monitoring, our annual river clean-up, paddling events, and other efforts to keep the river healthy, share the latest science and information about the river, and promote outdoor recreation and public access to our region's most valuable natural asset: The Shiawassee River.
Raise a glass to the Shiawassee River!

RIVER CLEANUP CANCELED DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS
You would think Mother Nature would be more cooperative with our plans, but for the second time we need to call off the River Cleanup. Thunderstorms are predicted all day. We will always put your safety first, so go back to bed and enjoy the storms.
We do need to get our river cleaned up before October 31st, so if you or your organization would like to work with us to organize and schedule mini-cleanups at parks and along stretches of the river, please get in touch with Larry Johnson and I at your earliest convenience.
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, your patience and understanding, and most of all....thank you for being such a great Friend!
