Monthly Volunteer Days
Thanks to the many who braved the January cold in order to attend our first, monthly FoJRP volunteer event! With 54 volunteers pitching in at the Northbank/Texas Beach area we painted the new stairs, covered up graffiti on the tower, removed ever-encroaching invasive plants, picked up litter, and generally spruced up the joint.
