On January 20, we lost a true river hero, dear friend and dedicated and loving family member. Greg Poleski was one of the founding members of Greenway Network and was the organizing force behind the St. Charles Big Muddy Speaker Series.

You are welcome to join us for an evening of sharing stories and gathering in this man’s honor.

Greg’s family is hosting a Celebration of Life on Sunday, Feb. 9 from 4-7 at the Riverlands Audubon Center in West Alton. Click here to view the flier.
