To most locals, the beautiful Detroit River, our region’s lifeblood, is taken for granted. I, personally, think it’s one of our most under appreciated assets, especially since it has played a huge role in the history and development of our entire region. It’s also a great recreational gem for sightseeing, watersports and fishing.
The Friends of the Detroit River, a dedicated group of activists, has been monitoring the health of this magnificent waterway and implementing campaigns to clean and restore it for quite some time now.
The Detroit Riverkeeper is one of the many valuable activities spearheaded by the Friends of the Detroit River to protect this valuable asset. As with all projects, funds are needed so the important work can continue.
Be part of the community effort to help keep the Detroit Riverkeeper boat out on the water. How? Attend the annual fundraising dinner this Saturday, March 31, 2012 from 6 PM to 10 PM at the Wyandotte Boat Club, 1 Pine Street. (734) 675-0141
Cost is $30 for singles, $50 per couple, & $15 for children under 12.
Enjoy a catered dinner, raffles, silent auction and presentations on the organization’s numerous Great Lakes Restoration Initiatives underway.
