The second annual Ricos Kayak Run was held on Sept. 5, 2016, at Gardner Lake. The event, which is open to the entire community, drew roughly double the attendance of its first year. Thirty-five people of all ages took the challenge to finish the approximate half mile course. Awards were presented for a number of different categories including the fastest male and female kayaker, the youngest participant and “Kraziest Entry.”
