The tenth annual Neches River Rendezvous was held today. The event was sponsored by Temple Inland, the Chamber of Commerce and many others. The event consisted of around 300 people either canoeing or kayaking down the Neches River.
Heather Kartye, Vice President of Lufkin Chamber of Commerce, says they couldn't have asked for a better day. "It's been a great turnout this year. We're very pleased with everything. The weather has been great, water level is perfect. It's run very smoothly."
