coffee houses, festivals, spiritual communities, and schools, Joe has spent the last nine years touring full time. His songs have traveled to every continent via radio, CDs, webcasts, and other musicians. He is noted for his unique merging of musical beauty, social consciousness, and spiritual exploration. His music invites us to live inside of our passions and our beliefs. “Joe Jencks is the type of musician that will cause you to drop that morning newspaper or pull your car to the side of the road when you hear his songs. He is the type of artist that will turn heads in his direction when he walks onto a stage. His voice will instantly draw you into his passionate songs. He is the type of musician whose music will become a part of you.” -Ron Olesko, WFDU FM, Teaneck, N.J. The Friday evening performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. The Coffeehouse is a familyfriendly event sponsored by Icicle Arts and held at Barn Beach Reserve at 347 Division Street in Leavenworth. There is a $3 cover charge at the door, children 12 and under are admitted free, and the hat is passed to pay the musicians. Refreshments are available.

RIVER: Big party held to thank volunteers Continued from Page 1

cess areas, mainly because it’s a good place to get in the river,” Shales said. “There is metal up and down the river.” The group focused on access points in Cashmere, Dryden and Monitor. There were also some boats that floated the river to remove garbage from the shoreline between Leavenworth and Monitor. In Cashmere, the volunteers pulled a car frame out of the river near Riverside Park. There was also a street sign removed, a crumpled 50-gallon barrel and metal pipes. Shales said, in this second year, he is never too surprised by anything coming out of the river. “There were landfills next to the river way back when,” he said. “The riverbanks are being scoured out and rolling downstream.” There is a 25 foot lampost under the bridge in Cashmere, but the crew could not budge it. Shales said the lampost is too heavy and would require heavy equipment to remove. The Tibits Bridge was removed, Shales said. It was a bridge, located near the Hitching Post in Cashmere, decommissioned in the 1950s. Some was removed last year as well. Another item, Shales said

they have their eyes on is a car body in the lower Wenatchee River, which was washed into the river in the early ‘90s floods. “We have the money and want to take a look at it,” he said. “It just depends on the water level. We are going after that.” This year, Shales said some rafting companies floated down the river to spot debris. Most rafters float in high water, so naturally would not notice some debris in the river. In the low water, the rafters were asked to spot debris in the river. “Trout Unlimited floated from the East Leavenworth Bridge. That is the highest float we have done,” said Shales. “There has been a lot of talk of doing this higher up river, but we haven’t floated it much. We asked the rafting companies where it is needed most. They thought from Peshastin down. But I am sure if you started looking for stuff (up river), you find it.” When the river is low, Shales said you really notice the pieces sticking out of the river, especially if you are looking for it. When the guides get out on the river, one they know very well, at low water levels, they really notice a lot of debris they might not otherwise. Partners in the clean up were Cascadia Conservation District, city of Cashmere, U.S. Bureau

of Reclamation, Chelan County Public Works, and Trout Unlimited. Several local businesses also contributed by sponsoring a celebration to thank the volunteers, including Good Mood Food, Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, Sure to Rise Bakery, Weinstein Beverage, Crunch Pak, Dan’s Food Market, and Food Pavilion. Chelsey Craven provided the music thanks to sound system donated by Avalon Music. “We filled the biggest raft in our fleet with a pick up load of rusty debris. It would have been nice to fill a dozen more,” said James L. Moore, Orion River Rafting, in a press release. Even after a second year of clean up, Shales said no one will say the river is clean. They plan to keep concentrating on the areas full of metal. “We hope to continue as long as the volunteers want to help out. It’s a good deal,” Shales said. “The Wenatchee River is our local gem. People come from all over the state to enjoy it. We need to keep it clean for us and everybody else.” In addition, Shales said, the river also provides habitat for endangered spring chinook, steelhead, bull trout and other species.
