THANK YOU! Nearly 1,300 attendees filled Dodd Auditorium on the University of Mary Washington campus Nov. 9 for the premiere of Rappahannock, the latest film from producer Bayley Silleck of Fredericksburg. Since then, Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) has sold more than 200 copies of the DVD and taken orders for many more, including the Blu-ray HD version. We are currently scheduling additional public showings of the film, so watch for upcoming dates. You can learn about them on our website, on our Facebook page, and by following us on Twitter@river_friends.
Nearly 30 attendees took part in the 2014 Civil War Paddle in June. National Park Service Supervisory Historian Greg Mertz, above, shared his 30-plus years of research during a daylong paddle down the Rapidan River. Our events calendar is posted each spring at www.riverfriends.org
