Summer is Over - Almost!
We are sending summer out with a bang! Due to overwelming support at the CTRA Annual Meeting there will be a fireworks display on the river this year. The big event will be on Saturday, September 6 starting at 8:45pm. The best viewing will be by boat so get some friends together and join us for the show. It should be a great night for fireworks viewing on the river. Sunset on September 6th is 8:07pm, moonrise is at 6:25pm and the moon will be about 81% full so it should be a great night.

The fireworks show will be paid for using donations and not CTRA general funds. To make a donation you can contact a CTRA Board Member or just go to the CTRA Membership Page and make your donation using PayPal
