Clean boat launch
Many thanks to Terry Konkle and her crew for the wonderful job they did at the Tidioute Boat Launch. They not only picked up the junk, trash, etc. that had been thrown around, they bagged it and trucked it to the borough dumpsters.
There are cans provided down at the boat launch and they should be used for the garbage.
We have a beautiful place to sit and watch the river, or play some hoops so lets keep it beautiful and enjoyable.
Everyone can help with this.
