Ocoee River Whitewater Rafting Tennessee supports Save Our Summers

Sunburst Adventures an Ocoee River Whitewater Rafting outfitting company encourages everyone to support the Tennessee Save Our Summers organization. Tennessee Save our Summers is a bi-partisan grass roots campaign that has the single purpose issue of lobbying the Tennssee Legislative Assembly to pass a law preventing Tennessee school systems from starting school before the fourth Monday of August each year. The primary benefits are two fold:1. School systems spent a fortune of taxpayer money during the month of August cooling schools unnecessarily and 2. In areas that are dependent upon the sales tax revenue that is generated in tourism and recreation areas, early school starts cripple the local economy. Tennessee’s Ocoee River region is an example of an area that benefits greatly from tourism driven revenue.  Information can be found online at www.savetennesseesummers.org Please take a moment to sign the online petition if you are a Tennessee resident and an Ocoee River enthusiast or just a concerned parent. Efforts such as these are gaining in popularity across the country.
