River Remembrance Day
October 19, 2013
History
The illumination ceremony is a river tradition first practiced around the turn of the century, again on River Appreciation Day in the 70’s, and as recently as 2001. As Save The River closes its 35th anniversary celebration and another year of vigorous advocacy on behalf of the St. Lawrence River, we invite you to join us in this celebration of river spirit. The point is to remind us that we are not alone, and that if we act as a group we can protect the place we love. We’re here thanks to you and your dedication to this River.
“Never doubt that a group of
thoughtful, committed people can
change the world, indeed, it is the
only thing that ever has.”
-Margaret Mead
