Didn't Hear Any Banjos

The Licking River Roundup is back. It's an all-day event where anybody in the community is encouraged to come out and help clean up the Licking River. The event is Saturday (which I'm also shooting) but today was the preview day. Dignitaries from around Licking County, as well as media, were invited to come canoe the section of the river that will be cleaned. It gave us a nice look at the current levels of trash and the need for the project.
