When the time comes to start putting shovels in the ground, we will be needing people of all skill levels!  Perhaps you would like to become a “River’s Edge Friend” and receive our email updates relating to the project’s progress? This is a community effort! Everyone is welcome to get involved. See our contact information below.

We have great Momentum and community recognition for our project, however we are needing an injection of new volunteers to carry the torch, particularly as we broach the final phase of our project, the Skateboard Park.  If you have an interest in skateboarding or have kids or grandkids that do, this request is for you!  Please be in touch so as to help bring our vision for the park to fruition.
