Veterans canoe trip planned for Aug. 25

A veterans canoe trip down the Little Miami River is being planned for Saturday, Aug. 25.

Fifty canoes were originally reserved with Morgan Canoe, with veterans to receive a discounted $5 cost for a canoe.

The deadline to make a reservation is Monday, Aug. 20. Contact organizer Joey Oeder, via Facebook or phone (937-725-2672) to make reservations for the canoe trip.

It will be a nine-mile canoe trip, with three stops along the way, and will last about four to five hours, according to Oeder.

Veterans can gather at Fort Ancient, off State Route 350, at 10 a.m. Aug. 25 and the hope is to be on the river by 10:30 a.m. Oeder forecasts participants will complete the canoe trip by 2 or 3 p.m.

A “little cookout” is also planned, he said.
