RiverFest

Join us at RiverFest as we staff a CFRW booth and volunteer in the RiverFest t shirt booth to raise funds for CFRW! RiverFest 2016 is Saturday and Sunday October 8th and 9th.  Last year we raised $1,000 for Cape Fear River Watch by selling RiverFest t-shirts, and we were basically rained out on Sunday.  We had a lot of fun last year, and if you can help us this year hopefully we will raise even more money!
