Chicago River Friends Want Your Stories

The Friends of the Chicago River are looking for your river experience -- "voices from all aspects of the river's history from bridge tenders to fishermen, kayakers and admirers to tell the story of what the Chicago River means to you." -- up until 1/15/12. Get your submissions (and questions) in to mayala[at]chicagoriver[dot]org, and your work may be shown on their website or the Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum.
