Crooked Creek Float, Clean-Up, Crawfish Boil set for Sunday

The Friends of the North Fork and White Rivers' annual fundraising event is scheduled for the Memorial Day weekend. The Crooked Creek Float, Clean-Up and Crawfish Boil will be held Sunday.

Participants in the clean-up will bring kayaks and canoes, float the creek and retrieve trash. Volunteers will assist with shuttles. There is no cost to participate in the clean-up.

The crawfish boil produced by Ed Chesney will begin at 6 at the Fred Berry Conservation Education Center on Crooked Creek in Yellville. Crawfish will be served with sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob. For anyone unsure about eating crawfish, wood-smoked hamburgers with trimmings will be available. Both are available for $30 each, and family meals for two adults and two kids under the age of 16 will cost $100.

In addition, musical entertainment will be provided in the pavilion. The cost is $10 for those skipping the meal but enjoying the music, beverages and fellowship. Raffle tickets for a Plein Air painting by Duane Hada are $20, and raffle tickets for a Gabe Levin guide trip will be $25.

Registrations will be accepted online at friendsoftherivers.org. For more information, send an email to riverfriend@friendsofherivers.org
