KITTATINNY CANOES RECIEVES AWARDS & RECOGNITION FOR ANNUAL RIVER CLEAN UP
On Wednesday, October 5th 2016, the Greater Pike Community Foundation, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives recognized Kittatinny Canoes with the Richard L. Snyder Excellence in Business Award - honoring Kittatinny’s commitment to fostering environmental and economic growth in the community and continuous efforts to raise awareness of the importance of stewardship of our natural environment. The pinnacle of this work being our Annual River Clean Up, which in the past 27 years, has drawn more than 9,000 volunteers and removed 457.48 tons of trash, 8,967 tires, and 8,750 pounds of aluminum cans from the Delaware River. The $1,000 State Grant presented was donated to several local volunteer fire companies.
We remain forever grateful for all of the volunteers who continue to support our endeavors each and every year with their tremendous work and dedication.
