2017 Lake Cleanup will be September 16th

Cleanup2017The clean up is a part of an international event sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy.  The Ocean Conservancy  encourages volunteer groups to clean up coastlines of lakes, rivers and oceans throughout the world during September.  This is an opportunity to demonstrate peoples' concern about the trash and litter in the Lake Robinson community and to do something about it.

The event will take place at Verne Smith Park on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Verne Smith Park is located off Mays Bridge Road on Lake Robinson.  Garbage bags will be provided.  Interested volunteers should bring gloves and other tools to help in the clean up effort.  Personnel with the Greer Commission of Public Works have identified the areas that they would like Friends of Lake Robinson (FLR) to target.  FLR will split the participants into three or four groups which will be sent to specific sites designated for clean up by the Greer Commission of Public Works.

Residents who live lakeside are encouraged to join the effort on September 17 by cleaning up the property between their yard and the lake.
