Sound Rivers showed its appreciation for volunteers at Brewery 99 in New Bern this week.

Volunteer Coordinator Emily Fritz and Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop welcomed Sound Rivers’ volunteers to a volunteer appreciation night at Brewery 99 in New Bern in Wednesday night.

“We had a fantastic turn out, including some seasoned Swim Guide volunteers and some new faces who joined our volunteer team this week,” Emily said. “I had such a wonderful time celebrating our dedicated volunteers and getting to learn more about their stories. Some folks have been volunteering for years and still hadn’t met one another, so it was really beautiful getting to see our community growing and people bonding over their love for our rivers.”

Sound Rivers is hosting three volunteer appreciation nights across the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico watersheds. The first event was held last week in Raleigh and the final event is being held at Pitt Street Brewing on the Pamlico in Washington tonight.

Many thanks goes to A’Lissa Clark and the rest of the Brewery 99 team for welcoming Sound Rivers into their space — and making great beer! 

Sound Rivers Volunteer Coordinator Emily Fritz organized the events being held across both watersheds.
