Reconnect and Celebrate Safely

For over a year, HRWC has taken a safety-first approach at all our activities and events, many of which went virtual. Now that it is safe for outdoor gatherings, we are thrilled to host friends and supporters on the river, once again. For this year’s Suds event will have these COVID-19 protocols in place:

  • All staff and volunteers will be vaccinated and masked
  • We are requiring attendees to be vaccinated
  • Our lovely outdoor setting gives us plenty of room for social distancing, tables will be generously spaced apart
  • We will follow all state and CDC guidelines
