Thanks to Jones County for making it possible.
Next Wednesday, the 30th, we will meet again at 9:30 at The Jones County offices on Rte 58 North of Trenton and paddle the next section down stream from Wilcox Bridge. Join us if you can. All are welcome.

Reserve February 5 for Southwest Creek in Jacksonville. More later. Elmer
