Hopefully those kids throwing rocks and bottles in the water there at yesterdays event will get some discipline from their neglectful parents. River access is very hard to come by on the Willamette, it’s a shame when parents let their kids throw trash into the water.  They must have been out of towners not Oregonians. Keep it clean Oregon or lose it forever.

The first boat was launched for the ribbon cutting ceremony to the sounds of wooden xylophones and cheers from the crowd. The City of Milwaukie has long needed an updated boat ramp and the new floating dock where there wasn’t one before. Good job Milwaukie! Oregon’s boaters thank you!
