We will really need the help of ALL who can attend Grand River Environmental Action Team (GREAT’s) Annual Grand River Clean-up Saturday, September 13, starting at 9:00 AM and done by 1:30 PM. The event will be staged at the CMS Headquarters located in downtown Jackson off Cooper St. This is the time to “pay back the river” for all the fun times we have enjoyed paddling it and to keep it healthy for the future.
 Wear clothes to work in and around the river according to the weather conditions. You may bring your canoe if you have one, but kayaks are of little use as they can NOT hold much debris. GREAT will have its seven canoes there to use, but there is NO need to make any boat reservations. We will also supply brand new work gloves (we have a variety of types and sizes), waders for those who prefer them, garbage bags, and other clean-up tools as needed. We will have bottled water for those who do not have their own water source. Lunch will be provided around 1 PM. To add some fun, there will be prizes for those who collect the most trash (both for working on land and in a boat) and the most unusual piece of trash.
 Attached, please find a Clean-up flyer to post and/or give to others.
 Please call GREAT’s phone: 517 416-4234 or Don Nelson, Clean-up Chairman 517 768-6393 if you have any questions or need additional information.
