Img_6875Michael Nitka, an experienced rower from Red Bank, gets ready to enter a scull during Navesink River Rowing‘s open house on Saturday.

Next Sunday, as part of Red Bank’s two-day centennial celebration, rowers from the the non-profit club will participate in a flotilla of boats large and small to honor the town’s riparian roots.

And on June 1, local citizens will clear out an overgrown lot owned by the borough just across the Maple Avenue cul de sac from NRR’s home on the Navesink. Sicilian Landscape Co. and Bostwick Tree Service are lending muscle and equipment for the effort.

The site was recently removed from consideration for possible sale after complaints by canoeists, kayakers and others.
