The Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (UCR) ended its 2011 event season on an inspiring note during its annual Member Celebration on Sunday, Dec. 4 at Roswell River Landing.
The riverside venue was perfect for boat rides, standup paddle board demonstrations and rain barrel painting for kids.
Special guest speaker Donna Lisenby of Upper Watauga Riverkeeper rallied the crowd with an important message about the connection between environmental advocacy and the creation of thousands of jobs needed to upgrade water and sewer systems, among other opportunities. UCR also took the opportunity to honor volunteers Pegi Amend, Bob Atkinson, Bill Hayn, Richard Jacobson and Mike Meyer, as well as hold a christening ceremony for its new boat.
Guests enjoyed beer from SweetWater Brewery and appetizers from Parsley's Catering, with music provided by Big Daddy DJ Service. Check out more photos on the UCR Facebook fan page.
