The Goderich Signal-Star - - Opinion -

Love Your Greats Day is held ev­ery year to cel­e­brate and show ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the Great Lakes. This is a day for peo­ple to get out out­side, walk along the beach, go for a pad­dle, or do some­thing else ded­i­cated to show­ing some love for these in­cred­i­ble nat­u­ral re­sources. All vol­un­teers are wel­come to join the Love Your Greats Day shore­line cleanup, which is hap­pen­ing on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15 from 10 AM to 12 PM.

Vol­un­teers can register for the cleanup at Pav­il­ion #2 — across from Beach Street Sta­tion. It is en­cour­aged to bring your own gloves, bags and lit­ter pick­ers and be ready to sweep the coast one last time be­fore the Win­ter weather gets here!

In hon­our of Love Your Greats Day, 360 Bikes ‘n Boards will be donat­ing $10 from ev­ery pad­dle­board rental on Septem­ber 15 to the Lake Huron Cen­tre for Coastal Con­ser­va­tion to help fund projects pro­tect­ing the Lake Huron shore­line. “The Great Lakes are so im­por­tant - on a global scale, but also for every­one and ev­ery­thing that lives here. It’s vi­tal that we care for the places we love and we would be hon­oured & grate­ful to have you join us on the 15th of Septem­ber to help pro­tect our shared back­yard” says Jen Pate, co-founder of Love Yours Greats.
