Canton, NY, May 12, 2011 — This weekend, the village of Canton will be a haven for flatwater paddlers with the 50th anniversary of the Rushton canoe races.
There are also plans in the works to make better use of the Grasse River's whitewater. Planners are exploring construction of a "whitewater play park" at four sites on the Grasse in Canton. There's a public meeting on the subject tonight at 5:30 at the Grasse River Heritage building in the village.
David Sommerstein caught up with two of the organizers, Baylor Johnson and Dan McConnell.
