Jones River paddle, potluck on Jan. 1

The Jones River Watershed Alliance is sponsoring an outing and potluck meal on New Year’s Day on the Jones River. Rowers and paddlers will set off at 1 p.m., weather permitting, from across the bay at Kingston’s boat ramp, located at the end of River Street. A potluck meal will follow at the Jones River Landing. The landing will open at 1 p.m. for those interested in the potluck without the paddling part of the event. Check the Jones River Landing website for updates at
