Armand Bayou Trash Bash
by John Bartos
There are cleanups through out our region as part of the annual Trash Bash event. I will be coordinating the HCC contingent at one of our traditional locales: Armand Bayou. Paddlers will be getting on the water earlier this year. The schedule is below. Contact me to let me know if you can help spruce up our great urban wilderness and paddling venue. If you can't make this location, go to another and let them know you are with the Houston Canoe Club. Thanks. John Bartos, 713-694-6697, firstname.lastname@example.org
