World Rivers Day - September 29th


On the last Sunday in September millions of people around the world will celebrate World Rivers Day thanks to a man named, Mark Angelo.  Mark Angelo is an internationally known river advocate.  Learn more about him here.

On the very same day, we in British Columbia, Canada celebrate BC Rivers Day and Nikki Rekman Sales is very involved in this environmental initiative.  

As a board member with the Chilliwack Vedder River Clean Up Society we are involved in the annual BC Rivers Day event as well as two other clean ups held in April and July.  We invite you to join us this Sunday at the Chilliwack Fish and Games Club House (48685 Chilliwack Lake Road). Registration begins at 8:30am. The river clean-up will take place from 9:30am to Noon, followed by a volunteer appreciation BBQ, entertainment and draw prizes.

We encourage families to join us so that we can inspire the next generation to care for their rivers and be active stewards in the places where they live.

Thank you all the volunteers, past, present and future who take the time to come out and support the Chilliwack Vedder River Society Clean Ups.  To our generous prize donators thank you for supporting us in acknowledging the many, many volunteers.  

Please support these businesses and thank them for their involvement.
