HERE ARE Some things worth knowing...
St. Johns Clutter Busters organizes neighborhood cleanups to help keep our little corner of the world fresh and clean. Help them in their efforts whether you bust clutter alone on your street or at an official event.
Frog Ferry promises to be an alternative to polluting traffic jams. They expect to begin ferry service (people, bikes - no cars) from the Cathedral Park dock to the RiverPlace dock in a little over a year from now. They are in the process of writing their federal grant application now. Their website contains a lot of information - recommended!
