ANNUAL ROADSIDE CLEANUP
April 25th, 2020
Each Spring The Roberds Lake Club organizes our annual Roadside Cleanup in coordination with Earth Day.
Thank you for those of you who joined us April 25th. Despite COVID-19 our road side clean up efforts took place as originally scheduled. Unfortunately with 2019's winter weather cancellation and the 2018 fall tornados, we had our have our hands full this year.
Roberds Lake Club helped celebrate the 50th Anniversary of National Earth Day. The Club organized the cleanup by having volunteers meet at 9 AM at the Wells Township Hall parking lot. There were 25 to 30 volunteers. At the meeting, a map was available where each volunteer could assign themselves an area to cleanup. Also available were vests to wear and garbage bags to be used for the collection. Once the bags were full, they were left on the roadside for other volunteers to collect and return to the same parking lot. From there, the County Highway Department will collect and dispose of the trash. With this many volunteers, all the roadsides in the Lake area were covered.Contributing to the success was a Saturday morning with beautiful weather. This contrasted with last year when we had rain and two years ago when we had heavy snow.
The Roberds Lake Club would like to thank all those who participated for a job well done. We look forward to doing this again next year.
The Club's annual roadside clean-up in 2017 was very successful. The group of over 30 assembled at 9 a.m. and picked their section of the roads, got their vests and garbage bags, had coffee,
juice, and rolls before heading out.
These amazing volunteers made the rounds of a full circle around the lake. The bags were left for pickup by another crew, stacked by the town hall for later pickup by the county. Interesting finds were 4 tires, a punching bag, a white barrel and Dave's least favorite... baggies of doggy doo!
We are looking forward to another great turn out again this year.
Let's all hope for some decent weather that weekend!!
