Dinner with the Rising Nation River Journey

Every 4 years, members of the local Rising Nation group and community supporters travel the Delaware River from New York to Cape May. In part, the trip is designed to promote the awareness that the Lenape people living in Pennsylvania are carrying on their traditions, culture and spiritual beliefs.

This year they will be stopping here at Pennsbury, and so we would like to invite our volunteers to join us on Thursday, August 12 around 5pm for a potluck dinner with the canoers! Their arrival time is hard to pinpoint – they expect to arrive around 4:00, so we will gather by the river around 5:00 for a casual meal and some great conversation.

Please RSVP to Hannah (c-hahoward@state.pa.us) or Mary Ellyn (mkunz@state.pa.us) by Saturday, July 31 if you are interested in coming!  Again, this is only open to volunteers and their immediate families.
