Hey guys! We are closing down RiverRat's for the day as we travel to Georgetown to help Tara Hall Home for Boys! If you want to come paddling on May 13th, join us at Tara Hall, helping us help a boy! For more information, visit tarahall.org. See you on the river!
There's something amazing about paddling down Lynches River. Well not "some" thing, it's many things. Every boater has their favorite thing; the loud silence, the stillness, the company, etc. Just this week, we've had several inquire about fall/winter paddles. Some ask if we are still open or when do we open again. Our family loves the river 365 days of the year and we want others to love it that much too.
Each season on Lynches River has it's own spectacular features that can warm our hearts and ease our minds. The reflection of the trees in the river during fall surrounds your boat.
Join us this fall. Paddle with us this winter. You won't regret it!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFO!
Today was quite eventful! We had paddlers from 15 different countries on the Lynches River.
These sweet faces came to visit RiverRat's today and had a great time!
It may seem chilly now, but warm days and Paddle Fest are just around the corner!
Save the Date: Saturday, June 18th, 2016!
RiverRat's is excited to be the sponsor for the fifth annual Tara Hall Paddle Fest!
Tara Hall began in 1969 with one lost boy. He was living on the street when Father Owen O’Sullivan recognized a need in his Georgetown community to provide a home for neglected and troubled boys. He was right. Since then, more than 600 boys from Georgetown and many surrounding communities have passed through Tara Hall’s doors.
Tara Hall began with very limited resources — surviving, and eventually growing, thanks to the determination of its founder, commitment of its volunteers and generosity of its supporters. In fact, today, Tara Hall operates under the direction of its first volunteer, Jim Dumm. Serving as the Executive Director for over 40 years, Jim has devoted himself to consistently delivering the original mission of Tara Hall. The on-campus school, a unique attribute as compared to other group homes, was added in 1973. The addition was imperative, as many boys are 1 to 3 years behind in their education upon arrival.
The Paddle Fest allows us to help raise the funds needed to support Tara Hall and the Tara Hall boys, many of whom you will see and meet during Paddle Fest!
