A river runs through it

East Manatee residents are particular about their rivers. The Manatee River, Braden River and the Myakka River make this river country, for sure.

The Old Braden River Historical Society has a day planned to cleanup the Braden River, a meandering waterway that shares its names with schools, churches and more, 9 a.m. - noon Sept. 24.

Registration will be at 8:30 a.m. at Linger Lodge. Boats will launch from Linger Lodge to clean the upper river and then return to Linger Lodge for lunch.

In past years, the launch site was nearby Jiggs Landing.

Participants are invited to bring their own kayak or canoe. There are a few available for loan.

  1. If you are looking to take out a loan but you worry that you might just be rejected or be denied of service because of some previous credit issues, you should consider a guaranteed payday loans.
