“Don’t just say it needs cleaned up.  Come out, make a difference and help clean it up,” Campbell County Litter Control Officer Glennis Monday said.    The rain and flooding, the trash from the watershed and shoreline has washed into Norris Lake and has made a mess of the lake, he said. Monday is asking for volunteers to help restore the lake back to its majestic beauty, and Saturday’s spring clean-up project offers just that; a chance to volunteer and help clean up Norris Lake.  Volunteers will gather at Sugar Hollow Marina tomorrow at 9 am and work until 1 pm.

Boats to haul volunteers and material, pick-up tools, trash bags, gloves, trucks to haul material from boats, garbage containers and lunch will be provided.  Volunteers will receive caps and T-shirts.

“Anglers, tubers, pleasure boaters and anyone who uses and loves our lake or anyone who says they want to make a difference and help clean up our county are encouraged to come out,” said Monday.  This is a chance for anyone who needs Tennessee Promise Hours to earn them.

Monday said this just one clean-up effort with more are planned.  For more information call 423.562.2526.

The event is sponsored by the Norris Lake Project Team, TVA and Campbell County Litter Control.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/29/2019-6AM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
