Volunteers Offer a Helping Hand at 15th Annual Lake Sweep at Arcadia Lake

31 Jul

For 15 years, resident volunteers in Edmond have woken up early and offered their time and service to do collective cleanups around Arcadia Lake.  Located on the Deep Fork River, Arcadia Lake was constructed by the City of Edmond and the US Army Corps of Engineers in 1987 to provide the city with recreational opportunities like picnicking, swimming, fishing, and boating.  In addition, Arcadia Lake also supplies water to the entire city.

In order to preserve its beauty and function, a Lake Sweep event is held every year to provide a massive cleanup around the lake. Volunteers are usually a part of church youth groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and school groups. They help sweep the grounds around the lake and clean up litter and debris.

The 15th Annual Lake Sweep at Arcadia Lake will be held on August 4, 2012 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.  Volunteers are asked to report by 7:00 a.m., and late registrants can meet at Spring Creek Park no later than 8:00 a.m.  Volunteers must register in order to get their trash bags and  assignments.  In addition, they will also receive a t-shirt, brunch, and free access to the lake all day.
