Canoe Clean Up 2019

 12th Annual Canoe Clean-Up, Can YOU Clean-Up? 12th Annual Canoe Clean-Up was a success! BIG shout out to Fort Wayne Outfitter's Bike Depot & Bike Hub canoe/kayak use, Bradley Scott & Jeff Bunger for YEARS of entertaining us with their talented tunes! Old Crown Coffee Roasters at the beginning with their delicious donation and accepting our trash after we pulled it out of the river and into their dumpster! Everyone always wants to know what we pulled out of the river! Styrofoam, plastic, cigarette butts, aluminum cans and glass bottles, rubber ball, tennis ball, 3 car tires, care fuel pump/hose, tent, tarps, wet blankets, hypodermic needles, tampons, to-go boxes, bike rack/bike tire, clothing, lighters, cigarette packs/chew packs, boat anchor, caution tape and so much more! Always thank you to our Board Members, Celia Elder, A.T. Thieme-Hamman, Aaron Goulet, Ellen Bauman, Jain Young & Heartland Communities: Plowshares, with Lauren Conklin special shout out for the great pics! YES! Thank you picture takers and our trash digging volunteers: Lisa Chantaca, Tricia Cliffton Brent Warner Bryan Utesch, & Daniel Hart! We had about 65 people overall who participated today! The St. Marys and Maumee are better now because of YOU! Save Ma_mee ~Read more
