Flint, MI. – The Flint River Watershed Coalition (FRWC) is gearing up for its 2020 Voice of the River Annual Celebration, celebrating a “20/20 Vision” for the Flint River and its watershed.
They invite one and all to join us on Thursday, January 30th at GM’s Factory One to celebrate the wonderful features of the Flint River. We’re excited to share our 20/20 Vision for the watershed. We’re looking back on some amazing changes over the years for the Flint River, as well as charting a path for the river for the next 20 years. Of course, we also celebrate the donors, volunteers, and members that make all this happen.  And as always, we’ll have great food (this year, catered by Redwood Steakhouse), great companionship, awards, and some fun raffle and auction items. You don’t want to miss out!!
