APE’s are hosting their 13th annual event on Saturday, June 21st, 2014. Meet at U.S.A. Raft, 2 Jones Branch Rd, Erwin, TN starting at 11AM. Participants will be assigned to teams plus provided with maps, trash bags and gloves. There are clean-up opportunities for both those with their own boats or rafts – and shore crews. Be prepared with appropriate footwear, sunscreen, bug repellant, etc. Rafts, pickup trucks, and trailers will be helpful and much appreciated. Consider bringing a packed lunch, boating equipment, rain gear, chairs, family, and friends. Showers and restrooms are available at the campground. For cleanup participants, a free BBQ dinner from Texas Roadhouse of Johnson City will be served at 6PM with live music by the Chaz Spence Trio and prize drawings. Bring a lawn chair, kick back with a cold tasty beverage, and know that you did something good for the river we all enjoy so much!
