River Clean-Up September 11

Hello Friends,

The Sierra Club and the Grand River Expedition 2010 Committee are proud to join Americans across the country, including me, who are volunteering on September 11, our National Day of Service, in honor and remembrance of those who bravely serve our country.  Our projects range from Community Cleanups to trail work in the mountains to watershed restoration around streams, and everything in between.   For more information and to RSVP, please see http://tiny.cc/ServeOutdoorsSept11

We’re inviting YOU to join us for a Community Cleanup Day in Lyons/Muir on Saturday September 11 between 9:30 and 1pm.   Lyons was a Middle Grand River overnight stop during the Grand River Expedition 2010 this July – and the whole town came out to greet us!  So we’re giving back. 

Our communities are our strongest assets, and our great outdoors is America’s heritage.  The Grand River brought us together, and our community service will further bond our friendships.  We promise to have fun!

Please join us!  We’ll start registration at Twin Rivers Elementary School, just off M-21, starting at 9:30am (with morning snacks for early arrivals), and we’ll enjoy lunch at 1pm at Hazel Devore Island in Muir.  The time between, we work – picking up trash, spiffing up public spaces, and getting to know each other! 

Please bring work gloves and trash bags, or you can use ours.  We also have Litter Gitters to save our backs.  We’ve got some other tricks up our sleeves as well – so come on out and lend a hand!  Note – parents must sign waivers for youths under 18. 

Remember, for more information and to RSVP, please see http://tiny.cc/ServeOutdoorsSept11

Hope to see you there!
