Preserving Our Local History – River Time

We are honored to have the opportunity to preserve a small piece of local history! Below you will find a YouTube link to the freshly uploaded video we converted from VHS.

‘River Time’ is a short 30-minute video documenting the history of the Fox River and the surrounding area. Made by local volunteers and community leaders in the 90s, the clothing fashion may look a bit funny now, but the facts are very interesting and informative!

We would like to say thank you to Karen Laws, the Producer and Director who gave us permission to bring this video into the 21st Century! Thank you to Tom Frantz at University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley for assisting with the digital conversion.  Also a big thank you to the rest of the River Time team for providing inspiration for what Fox River Kayaking Company does today!


So dim the lights, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!
