This site is governed by the East Texas River Runners, a non-profit organization which promotes water safety, canoe racing and education with the primary purpose of raising scholarship funds for the Trinity Valley Community College located in Palestine, Texas.
On this home page, we'll introduce our club and give some examples of the types of activities we're involved in. Our Club provides canoe clinics on paddling, river clean-ups, and safety at least once a month. We are affiliated with the Texas Canoe Racing Association and the United States Canoe Racing Association which promotes similar views. In addition to this we have one major annual fund raiser. The first Saturday of August--the Neches River Wilderness Canoe Race. We also help coordinate other events for other groups and promote the East Texas Area recreational tourism.
