Walk of Danger! When Scot Grassette described it to us at the last River Valley Fourth of July Celebration Committee meeting, we were all wondering who would dare perform that dangerous stunt. Scott said, “I will.”
The plan is for Scot to do his Walk of Danger most likely on an area of the football field around 6 p.m. on the Fourth of July. I don’t believe he has ever performed this feat in a public forum before so it will be one of the many exciting happenings at the celebration.
The number of travelers visiting the Rumford Information Center is already on the increase, which opens from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting on May 27th (closed Memorial Day). With Ron Russell installing a computer for volunteer use, the volunteers will have even more information at their disposal. The volunteers do a great job already, so this will just enhance it even more.
One of the volunteers said a woman came into the center and asked where the falls are located while standing right in front of the window in the back of the center that faces the falls. Needless to say she was quite impressed when she looked out and saw them as they have been basically all spring, “fast and furious” (without Vin Diesel).
With the new directors and executive board members elected at the last RVCC Board meeting, it looks like it will be an exciting and event filled year. There is a lot of energy within the board which in turn will promote positive happenings in the River Valley!
