Join the Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup on April 25April 14, 2015 by clackey
On April 25, hundreds of volunteers will come together to clean lake roads during the fifth annual Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup. All volunteers will receive a free lunch and will be entered into a drawing for door prizes.
“If you live near Dale Hollow, you have a lot to be proud of,” said Tammie Wilson of PRIDE, one of the Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup sponsors. “This area is beautiful, and it’s such an important tourist attraction, making it valuable to the local and state economies.”
“Another source of local pride is the way volunteers and local leaders rally to make the lake roads look their best each spring,” Wilson continued. “This is the fifth year that this community has organized this cleanup, and it has grown to be one of the region’s most successful Spring Cleanup events.”
“I want to thank the local partners that make the Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup possible,” Wilson said. “They are the Cumberland County Fiscal Court, Clinton County Fiscal Court, Dale Hollow State Resort Park, Hendricks Creek Resort and Sulphur Creek Resort.”
On April 25, volunteer registration will begin at 9 a.m. CT at these locations: Hendricks Creek Dock, Sulphur Creek Dock and Dale Hollow State Resort Park’s picnic area.
At registration, volunteers will be directed to an area to clean. They will receive trash bags, gloves and safety vests.
From 10 a.m. until Noon, volunteers will pick up litter along the roads around the lake. Safe, age-appropriate cleanup areas will be available for groups with children, such as schools and churches.
At Noon, volunteers will gather for a free cook-out at the picnic area at Dale Hollow State Resort Park. The door prize drawing will be held during the cook-out.
The Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup is part of the PRIDE Spring Cleanup campaign across 42 counties of southern and eastern Kentucky. The region-wide PRIDE Spring Cleanup is sponsored by Outdoor Venture Corporation, Walmart and Waste Management of Kentucky.
