Staff at West/Rhode Riverkeeper were able to breathe a huge sigh of relief this weekend, after we pulled off another successful Rhythm on the River fundraiser. To those of you who were in attendance, I hope you'll agree it was a great party.

Rhythm could not be possible without the tremendous support of our volunteers. We had volunteers to help with the setup and preparations, registration/check-in, tender service, the bar, the silent auction, and of course, cleanup at the end. We are a small organization and that was a BIG party - and we owe a lot to all of those who helped us make it a success.

So much of what we do depends on volunteer support from within our community. We are very proud of what we do, and equally proud of those who help us do it. From the dedicated Wednesday Morning Warriors who go out water sampling every week, to the members of our  Board of Directors (also volunteers!) - people power is what makes this organization run.

So thank you to all of our volunteers. We couldn't do this without you!
