Lake Cleanup Day 2013

On our second cleanup day we managed to get a lot of rubbish out of the lake with a small but dedicated group of locals.

After last years BIG cleanup there was still plenty to pick up with 2 large bins full but the concensus was that there was less rubbish. A very good indication that our annual cleanup day is making a difference.

Rubbish was collected from all parks and removed from the surrounding shoreline by several boats and floats.

Unfortunately the weather closed in with a severe thunderstorm warning just as we were finishing the cleanup so we had to cancel the BBQ. Later we had an impromptu sausage sizzle in the evening where the raffle for the prizes was drawn.
