Earth Day Happy Hour at Duck Island Club

Get your Earth Day on with an Earth Day Happy Hour we're hosting at the Duck Island Club. We'll have Earth Day and Cuyahoga River trivia, music from 1970, a special cocktail named after the 2nd Annual Blazing Paddles Paddleboard, Kayak & Canoe Paddlefest (happening exactly two months later on June 22) and we'll have a big announcement on Share the River becoming an organizational advocate for fishable, swimmable, drinkable and playable water! But at its most basic, all we wanna do is toast the earth with like-minded friends 49 years after the first Earth Day!

Consider sharing the Facebook event to your page and invite your friends! https://www.facebook.com/events/592104031310301/
