Lo­cal vol­un­teers clean up Bear Creek

The Dundalk Eagle - - FRONT PAGE -

Or­ga­niz­ers and vol­un­teers with Clean Bread and Cheese Creek had per­fect weather to work with more than 65 ded­i­cated vol­un­teers at the Bear Creek Park and Stream Cleanup, re­mov­ing 180 bags of trash, an of­fice chair, three bi­cy­cles, a minibike, the roll cage from a go-cart, a gui­tar and much more from up­per Bear Creek. The group thanks every­one for their hard work un­der such tough con­di­tions. “Our vol­un­teers are ded­i­cated to a cleaner, greener, health­ier com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment,” the or­ga­ni­za­tion noted in a re­lease. “They are with­out equal! Thank to every­one who vol­un­teered with us to­day.”

Clean Bread and Cheese Creek would also like to thank Ocean Con­ser­vancy, Amer­i­can Rivers, Day to Serve, Na­tional Pub­lic Lands Day and Trash Free Mary­land for all their as­sis­tance and sup­port on this cleanup, as well as Chick-fil- A East­point, Squire’s Ital­ian Res­tau­rant and Cater­ing, Gold’s Gym-Dun­dalk, Papa John’s-Dun­dalk and Weis Mar­ket-#85 for their do­na­tions of food and bot­tled wa­ter.

S Navy, Saint Timothy’s School, Gen­eral John Stricker Mid­dle School, Grange El­e­men­tary School and the com­mu­nity for all the in­cred­i­ble vol­un­teers they sup­plied! The group also wishes to ac­knowl­edge Bal­ti­more County High­ways for pro­vid­ing dump­sters and pho­tog­ra­pher Dean Wil­son and vol­un­teers for con­tribut­ing pho­tos.
