Vol­un­teers brave rain to clean stream

The Dundalk Eagle - - FRONT PAGE -

On Sept. 2, de­spite a very cold and rainy morn­ing, more than 45 ded­i­cated vol­un­teers ar­rived at Bread and Cheese Creek and filled a 40-yard dump­ster with more than four tons of trash and de­bris they re­moved from the his­toric stream and its banks. This in­cluded 220 bags of trash, half a truck full of metal to be re­cy­cled, eight mat­tresses, four box springs, four couches, three chairs, a ta­ble, and much more.

“Thank you ev­ery­one so very much for all your in- cred­i­ble hard work un­der such tough con­di­tions,” pres­i­dent/founder John Long said. “Our vol­un­teer ded­i­ca­tion to work­ing to­ward a cleaner, greener, health­ier com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment can­not be topped. Thank you so much!”

Clean Bread and Cheese Creek would also like to thank the Ocean Con­ser­vancy and Amer­i­can Rivers for all their as­sis­tance and sup­port. The group would also like to thank H&S Bak­ery for do­nat­ing rolls and Robert Jones, who made and do­nated pulled pork and slider rolls, and his wife Tracey, who made brown su­gar baked beans, for their gen­er­ous do­na­tions of food to feed hun­gry and hard­work­ing vol­un­teers. Also, thanks to Ger­sh­becks and Trade­point At­lantic for do­na­tions al­low­ing for the pur­chase of much-needed sup­plies. Spe­cial thanks also to Bal­ti­more County High­ways for sup­ply­ing a dump­ster for the event as well and Tow­son Univer­sity for the vol­un­teers they sup­plied.
