FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hahira, GA, April 23, 2018 — Fifty children and adults helped WWALS clean up the site of old Troupville Saturday, with permission and thanks from the landowner where that former Lowndes County seat goes down to the Little River Confluence with the Withlacoochee River, just west of Valdosta.
Cleanup leader WWALS member Bobby McKenzie said:
We met at the signs for safety/execution briefing. I was able to
talk about the signs and water trail to 50 folks and when I asked
who knew about the Little and Withlacoochee Rivers and being able to
kayak them, only 2 folks were aware. Now 50 more folks are
aware…and half were kids…but some of the best kind of kids…Boy
and Girl Scouts!
