MLRA Earth Day Community Clean Event Was A Great Success

Photo10

Earthday_inheritWe would like to extend a our sincere thanks to all of our sponsors and everyone from our community who came out to help support our annual Musselman’s Lake Earth Day Community Clean-up.

Saturday April 25th was a great day here at the Lake and through your efforts and generosity we all made a positive, noticeable difference to our community and the environment.

Thank you all for your contributions and for dedicating your time and hard work to help make our Community Clean-up a success and a day to remember.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

This event was made possible with the help of:Photo6

Tiny Seedlings for providing the fantastic catered meal that we all enjoyed.

United Soils for providing the garbage bins and garbage bags and staff to help clean up.  United soils also graciously donated their Photo3sweeper to remove as much sand and debris left over from winter and keep it from washing into our precious lake.

George at the Coolest Little Ice Cream shop for all of his help.

Mike and Most Excellent Productions for doing all of the sound and keeping us entertained.

Cedar Beach Resort for providing a great location to host our event and all of the equipment and staff.

We would also like to thank Ravenshoe group for all of their online support and their help in keeping our community up to date and informed!Photo2

This year we collected a staggering amount of garbage out of the lake by our water teams and off the roads and ditches that surround our community.  In total we removed 2 full bins totalling over 40 yards of garbage!

We also collected 10 great bikes that were donated that same day to Africycle and will be on their way to Africa making a huge difference to the children those bikes reach.

We collected 47lbs of used batteries that were taken to a recycling center and that we kept out of our landfill.  The sweeper made great progress and removed tons, literally tons of material from our roads that will never wash into our lake.

Well done everyone! We have a lot to be proud of.  Without the great support of all of you this event never would have happened, pat yourselves on the back!

Stay tuned to the website for important updates as we keep you informed on what is happening in our community.

International Earth Day is today. Our Community Spring Clean is now only a few days away and we have some exciting news!

Earthday_inherit

We have been working with Tiny Seedlings and they have graciously offered to donate a fantastic lunch for everyone who helps out.  This year it won’t be the usual, hot dogs.   This year we get to warm up with homemade chili and corn on the cob!  Thank you Tiny Seedlings!

United Soils has not only offered to supply the garbage bags and gloves that we needed but will also be supplying 2 garbage bins for all the waste we are going to collect.

One of our concerns for the Lake is water runoff and the sediment that it carries into the Lake.  After a long winter there is a lot of sediment along the sides of the roads that needs to be picked up.  When we presented this concern to United Soils they once again stepped up to help our community and offered to use their street sweeper to clean the areas of concern!  The sooner we can get the gravel and sand off the road, the more of it we can keep out of our Lake!

8th Annual MLRA Earth Day Community Spring Clean Event

We will be collecting used bikes for Africycle, if you have a used bike laying around please drop it off knowing that it is going for a great cause.  There is more information about where these bikes go after you donate them at www.africycle.org.

Are you collecting used batteries but don’t know what to do with them…..bring them by and lets keep them out of the landfill, let us dispose of them for you!

If you have a boat that you can’t get out of the water or a dock that is garbage don’t leave it in the lake, email us and we will come by and help you remove it.

Cedar Beach Park will be providing large recycle bins for everything from metal to plastic, lets keep as much out of landfill as possible.

Can’t wait to see everyone Saturday morning, come early for coffee and we get to end with a great lunch and entertainment by Most Excellent Productions!

Should be a fantastic Day!!

Don’t forget, today, that is actually Earth Day please take time to think of our community and our environment and what YOU can do to make a difference.
