April 27, 2016, Owosso, MI - The Friends of the Shiawassee River joined members of the Owosso Rotary Club in Harmon Patridge Park this afternoon to unveil the latest Adopt-A-River sign. The Owosso Rotary became the latest sponsor of the Friends’ Adopt-A-River program, which offers businesses and non-profit service organizations the opportunity to help care for specific stretches of the Shiawassee River in collaboration with the Friends.
"The Owosso Rotary Club is proud to support the work of the Friends,” said Owosso Rotary President Paul Cook. “The Shiawassee River is a key asset for both our community and the region."
“The Friends organization is so appreciative of the continued support of the Owosso Rotarians,” added Lauri Elbing, the Friends’ Executive Director. “In addition to their generous financial gift through the Adopt-A-River program, they have also devoted many hours of volunteer service caring for the River. Their members have been a part of our annual River Clean-Up every year since the very first one twenty years ago – specifically targeting the Harmon Patridge section each of those years.”
