River Romp Still a Success

Posted on 30 September 2010 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Lois Powers is the Coordinator for Keep Boone County Beautiful, the organization that oversees the award winning Dragoon River Romp. The 5th Annual Romp in mid-September had possibly the worst weather conditions yet, cold and rainy, with early morning strong thunderstorms. Powers says volunteers still showed up, more than a hundred were on the Des Moines River and on it’s shore. She said a lot of summer flood debris was removed, especially tires. Powers was a guest on the KWBG News and Public Affairs Program, Tuned In, Thursday.
