March 22 meeting to explore creating northwestern Illinois canoe, kayak club
FREEPORT, Ill. — The Friends of the Pecatonica River Foundation (FPRF) will host an informational meeting about starting a canoe and kayak club in northwestern Illinois and southwestern Wisconsin at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 22, at the Freeport Public Library, 100 E. Douglas St., Freeport, Ill.
