Wayne Kirkpatrick, DRBA's President, welcomes everyone to the dinner.
Having a small staff of only eight, the Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) is very grateful for all the wonderful volunteers that help us to acheive our mission of preserving and promoting the natural and cultural resources of the Dan River basin. Volunteers come in all forms, from those who contribute goods/services, participate in steering commitee meetings, lead trips, monitor water quality and maintain trails. Recently DRBA hosted approximately sixty of our wonderful volunteers at a dinner to thank them for their contributions over the past year. Enjoy the following photos from the dinner held at Spencer Penn Center in Spencer, VA.

The Dan River Basin Association's (DRBA) Martinsville-Henry County Rivers and Trails Group consists of local volunteers who are establishing recreational trails and river access points in our section of Southern Virginia. Our mission is to protect, promote, and enhance the natural and historical resources of Martinsville and Henry County through environmental education, recreational activities and tourism, and land conservation and revitalization. Our work has been made possible through the generosity of the Harvest Foundation, which has provided funding for staff and operations in Martinsville and Henry County.
