What a pleasure it was to gather at Dr. and Mrs. Crosby’s home on Black River for our annual River Day. Friday was rained out so we all turned up in the afternoon on Saturday, August 20. There was a little bit of everything going on all day: water was splashed, kayaks and paddleboards were paddled (and sometimes overturned), and the river was full of happy kids swimming and tubing.

By the time parents arrived to pick up their kids, we were all exhausted and exultant, a time-honored Kingfisher tradition.

Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Crosby, for your generosity in sharing your perfect-for-fun home. Thank you to Mr. Jim and Ms. Mahi and Ms. Patti for bringing their boats and helping with lifeguarding. It was a day to remember for sure.
