Thanks to all for a great event
To the editor:
On Oct. 17, the Clayton County Water Authority and Keep Clayton County Beautiful teamed up for the 10th Annual Rivers Alive/Stream cleanup. We hosted the event at Panhandle Park, and we cleaned Hurricane Creek.
This event was a huge success, with more than 150 volunteers, who collected 2,000 pounds of debris from the stream.
These volunteers pulled out 4 old, TV sets, a dishwasher, tires and an entertainment center -- just to mention a few of the cast-off items that were found.
The Clayton County Water Authority and Keep Clayton County Beautiful would like to thank ALL of the volunteers who came out to make Clayton County a better community in which to live, work, and play.
We extend that "thank you" to Southside Seafood, who furnished the fish for the fish fry for the volunteers; to Mayor Willie Oswalt, the City of Lake City and Councilman Dwight Ginn, for frying the fish; and to Keep Clayton County Beautiful Board Members Katherine and Michael Ellis, who fried the French fries; and to the Jonesboro Dwarf House/Chick-Fil-A, for providing the coleslaw.
We must also mention the wonderful folks who helped serve the food.
This event could not have been possible without the support of the Clayton County Board of Commissioners, the Department of Transportation and Development, Clayton County Parks and Recreation, and the Clayton County Athletic Association.
