Our Fifth Appreciation Day

We are proud to tell you that on May 6, 2011, the Friends of the Little Plover River held the 5th Annual Appreciation Day Event.  Yes, it was 5 years ago that we first welcomed to the river approximately 140 fourth grade students from Roosevelt and Plover/Whiting Elementary Schools.  The educational hands-on event was an immediate success and continues to be a much anticiapated event for the fourth grade students.

To date we have seen approximately 700 students become engaged in water conservation, educational and recreational themes , , , we're planning on 1,000 students by 2013

Mark your calendars for next year's Appreciation Day--May 4, 2012

A Special Thanks to Our Teachers

This Annual Appreciation Day Event continues to be so very successful because of these enthusiastic and supportive teachers.  For this and your dedication We Thank You!  Through rain and shine you have come.
