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.
