About Us

Kyle Catalano, like many families, spent his weekends and holidays on the Tchefuncte River out by the sandbar with his family and grew to appreciate the beauty of the river. However, over the years he noticed the sandbar and river were being neglected and almost forgotten.

In 2009, the sandbar disappeared all together. It was at that time he realized someone had to take the initiative to restore the beauty of our river we all know and love.

It has been through his commitment and dedication, along with fellow Board Members: Jay Blossman, Vice President, and Richard Reynolds, Treasurer; that the Tchefuncte River Foundation was created in 2010.

TRF's Mission Statement

"The purposes for which the Corporation is organized include (but are not limited to) promoting interest and providing leadership in the restoration and maintenance of the quality of the waters of the Tchefuncte River Basin, promoting improvements in the administration of public services relating to the Basin, and promoting the wise conservation of the resources of the Basin so that future generations might also enjoy it's benefits."

Organizations such as TRF are not only vital to their particular mission, but more importantly to the community and business owners. It's people, like our TRF members, that can make a difference and a huge impact for our families, friends, community, and businesses.

We thank all our TRF members for taking part in restoring the river we all know and love!
