I release the “Keepers of the Shiawassee, Inc.” its board members, and all other persons associated with the “Keepers of the Shiawassee, Inc.” as well as the volunteers assisting with the Flotilla activities, from any claim that their negligence injured or damaged me in any way during the River Fest Flotilla activities.
On behalf of myself, heirs, my successors and assigns, I so further agree to release and hold harmless and indemnify the “Keepers of the Shiawassee, Inc.” (its board members, members, and all other persons associated with the “Keepers of the Shiawassee, Inc.” as well as volunteers assisting with the Flotilla activities), from any and all liability or responsibility whatsoever for injury (or death) to myself/all persons, for any damage to property of others/City of Linden/Shiawassee River or injury/ damage to another party that may arise out of/or result from, my participation in the 2021 River Fest Flotilla activities.
