Reminder: The Trashtastic Boatacular fest is this Saturday in Santa Rosa.

We ran a story last month about the efforts by Comstock and Santa Rosa middle school students to create floatable vessels to enter in the “competition.”  To read that story, click here http://bit.ly/11nGUmk

The event, which includes a potluck picnic, is open to the public and will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Nagasawa Community Park on Fountaingrove Lake. The boat race is scheduled for 2 p.m.

For more information, see their Facebook page http://on.fb.me/11HrfOZ or call organizer (and make and art teacher) Dawn Thomas at 245-4735.
