Fall cleanup at launch site

It was a rainy Friday but stalwart volunteers from Duke Energy (top left) and Leinenkugel Brewing (bottom right) pitched in and cleared half a dumpster of trash from the banks of White River at the Cornell Avenue launch. Good job, folks!

Memorial Bench installed at Rivi

riviBench-500A memorial bench with a shaded view of the White River was dedicated and installed yesterday with contributions from the Scott Tegarden Memorial Fund at The Riviera Club. A second bench will be installed in the coming week to a high bank overlooking the Indianapolis Arts Center launch and the Monon Trail. We encourage you to sit a moment, without technology in hand, and reflect on the beauty you see.
