27 May 2022 - RIG's Safety Grant
RIG was awarded a volunteers' grant last year and has now expended the grant mostly on safety equipment. Whilst all our volunteers, be they involved with the building of Independence; educating the public on the history of American River and environs; gathering and cataloging artefacts; or doing one of the many self-imposed tasks which are part of RIG's objectives, are vital to the project.
The safety of our volunteers is of paramount importance as, without them, we'd NEVER attain ANY of our objectives. Most of the grant went on the installation of safety platforms to allow improved access to Independence for the building crew.
