Friends group organizes to promote river use
A new community group is hoping to encourage the use and protection of the Willow River.
The idea for the "Friends of the Willow River" was kicked around about a year ago among a handful of river lovers.
Mike Kelly, chairman of the Friends group, and member Mike Reiter were two of the key figures in the groups beginnings.
"Now that we're both retired," Kelly said, "we have some time to put into this stuff."
