River Action honored with Golden Glow

River Action was given the Golden Glow Award from the Association of Great Lakes Outdoors Writers (AGLOW). The award was announced during the annual AGLOW conference in Chautauqua, NY, in September.

In his nomination letter, past AGLOW president Bob Groene, of Geneseo, IL, wrote that River Action’s mission is similar to AGLOW’s.

“One of our stated purposes is to perpetuate, conserve, improve and promote the great outdoors, outdoor traditions and the outdoor experience. Not unlike River Action!” he said.
