Friends of Claytor Lake (FOCL) is asking lake residents and users to pitch in Saturday, June 28, as it holds its annual All Lake Clean Up Day designed to help keep the lake free of trash.
The clean up will be held between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The public is urged to bring their families and friends to take part in the event.
During the last cleanup, 178 bags of trash were removed from the lake, along with 11 tires, 14 tires with wheels attached, 20 pieces of Styrofoam, 10 plastic chairs, a refrigerator, a 55-gallon drum and even a message in a bottle. The nature of the message was not disclosed.
