Community Spotlight: The Grants Pass Active Club

January 5th, 2020

The Redwood Hyperion would like to shine a light on local organizations that make a difference in our area. The Grants Pass Active Club is our spotlight this month.

“The Grants Pass Active Club is a non-profit organization that contributes to the youth of Southern Oregon. Since 1959, The Grants Pass Active Club has held Boatnik every Memorial Day weekend along the Rogue River in Grants Pass, Oregon. Boatnik is one of two fundraisers for this group of volunteers and takes all year to plan.

All funds raised by the Grants Pass Active Club from Boatnik are returned to the community by supporting local children and youth programs. The club has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past 50 years. The members quietly support their community by bringing Oregon’s second largest festival to the shores of Riverside Park and the Rogue River.”
