Join now.  This forum will open for introductions at 100 members. 

While an independent forum, it is a friendly complement to the important work of the District 17 Capitol River Council. Also check out the complementary Lowertown Landing Facebook Page.

Participate via e-mail or the web. Stay tuned for future Facebook and Twitter options.
