Sign Up for Turkey River Rocks

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

You are invited to celebrate the beautiful and historic Turkey River on August 11, at Turkey River Rocks! This special day of river activities begins in Elkader and ends downstream at the Motor Mill historic site.

“We are excited to help host this event that will feature the unique attractions found along our stretch of the new Turkey River Trail,” says Roger Thomas, of Main Street Elkader, one of the local sponsors. “Turkey River Rocks! will be a wonderful day of fun and education about our area that will show off our natural and cultural resources.”

Registration and shuttle service begins at 9 a.m. at Elkader City Park. A program begins at 10 a.m., followed by a scenic three-hour paddle from Elkader to the historic Motor Mill site. At Motor Mill, there will be interpretive tours, displays and a post-float party with a locally produced meal and entertainment by the band Kindred Minds. After dark, campers at Motor Mill will be able to see the Perseid Meteor Showers.

A $20 per person fee includes paddling insurance, evening meal and music, and camping at Motor Mill. Early signups by July 24 are encouraged to qualify for a free t-shirt and to be guaranteed a meal.  Register Here

Participants are asked to bring their own canoe or kayak, lifejacket, water, sack lunch and snacks. A limited number of canoes and kayaks are available to rent in advance from Turkey River Outfitters, at www.turkeyriveroutfitters.com, 563-245-3802.

The day’s hosts include Main Street Elkader, Clayton County Conservation Board, Motor Mill, Northeast Iowa RC&D, the Turkey River Recreational Corridor, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Bureau, the Fayette County Conservation Board, Clayton County Conservation Awareness Network and Iowa Rivers Revival (IRR).

IRR is a statewide river education and advocacy non-profit organization committed to protecting the state’s rivers and streams, and helping reconnect people to their local waterways.

Men in Black 3 – Midnight Showings

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Agents J and K are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.

Michael McLean’s touching Christmas tale has become a timeless classic. It tells the story of a nurse whose empty life is changed by her patient, John, who expands her understanding of Christmas. The Forgotten Carols are original songs from the perspective of characters such as the innkeeper who turned the young couple away or the shepherd who slept through the angel’s announcement. Their personal accounts, until now, have been overlooked or ignored. Together, John and Constance discover what the world has forgotten about Christmas.
