As representative of the Newnan Paddlers Meetup group which has been actively involved in the Sweep the Hootch cleanup projects for many years, I was excited to see the front page (April 7) mention of this year’s efforts.

Newnan Paddlers had 11 volunteers at this year’s cleanup along the river within the park. Newnan Paddlers Meetup was founded eight years ago as a healthy outdoor outlet for local paddlers of all skill levels. We have grown to 580 members and have day as well as multi-day trips throughout the state and surrounding areas.

We are a free organization open to all – https://www.meetup.com/newnan-paddlers/ .

Thanks to the county we were shuttled to the put in by the prison bus.
