This will be the last Chatter for a couple of weeks because I am going on a family vacation on the coast of Maine!
With the success of the Fourth of July celebration it was good news that the River Valley Fourth of July Celebration Committee has decided to continue their work towards next year's event. All the reports I received and heard about were positive and that’s what the committee was seeking when they planned the event. There are some items that were addressed at the wrap-up meeting as reported by Carlo Puiia in the Sun Journal article. This way the committee can improve upon the event for the years to come.
With the torrid temperatures we have been experiencing, the visitors (along with the volunteers and me) appreciate the air conditioned information center we have here at the base of the falls. The center has become extremely busy with some heading east some heading west and many experiencing the great things we have to offer right here in the River Valley.
Once again, the number one question seems to be where are the moose? What time can we see them? Our volunteers are extremely knowledgeable about the area and which road(s) would likely lead to possible moose sightings.
Looks like the Christmas in July Toy ride was a huge success judging from the aerial pictures that were sent to me by Mike Worthley of the Roxbury ATV Riders. Great job to you all!
