Hurricane Idalia devastated the Big Bend area. Less than 24 hours of the storms passing, KRVSA partnering with The Freedom Tour, provided pallets of water, Gatorade, paper goods, bleach, and other items to the people in that area. Thank you to our members who took part in in this effort to drive up and deliver these much-needed items.
The club also reached out to The Russell Home for Atypical Children after seeing a Facebook post about needing supplies. The Board and Leadership Team made quick work with getting the word out and almost $6000.00 was raised to purchase the items needed to re-supply the depleting pantry.
Save the Glen – many of you may not be aware but, government agencies are pushing hard to close Glen Springs and Weeki Wachee.
They are pushing to close off access to all motorized vessels along with no mooring/beaching and/or anchoring allowed inside the entire area of the springs and spring run.. This is serious folks and the KRVSA is on board with other non-profit organizations to protect our rights to keep water ways navigable.
