A message from a family on the river:
My name is Melanie and on the July 4th weekend my kids and I were kayaking on the Hiwasee River and we ran into a group of kayakers from TSRA. We had a lot of fun with them and they helped us over a set of rapids that I had been a little worried about. I wanted to say thank you but wasn't sure how to reach the group. Perhaps you can pass along this message.
I wrote a blog post about the adventure, if you have a chance to read it:
