Thanks to all who stopped by my site at Marine Park on Alcoa Highway to volunteer for this year's River Rescue.
My site was just one of over 30 that was cleaned up on Saturday, all part of the 27th annual local river and creek shoreline cleanup. River Rescue is one of the oldest such volunteer-driven cleanups in the country! Pat yourself on the back. As of yet, I haven't heard of the total number of volunteers and tons of trash removed from locations from Ijams downstream to Ft. Loudoun Dam.
Knoxville News Sentinel photographer Adam Lau and reporter John Shearer covered River Rescue. Lau visited my site. To see their report, click: Knoxville News Sentinel
