What do you get when you mix 38 Interactors, 16 Rotarians, and three citizen volunteers on an Earth Day Plus One morning?
You get approximately 400-500 pounds of old tires, metal, styrofoam, and plastic in all sizes and shapes, way too many mylar balloons and ribbon, plastic straws and fireworks residue, cigar tips, plastic water bottles and caps, etc, etc....
Several Rotary Interact clubs came together to do three hours of cleanup at a Lake Michigan beach. Participating Rotary Interact clubs included:  Mona Shores, Oakridge, Muskegon High, North Muskegon, Reeths Puffer, and Montague-Whitehall.
This was our joint project effort to help with the Great Lakes Watershed Initiative going on today all around the Great Lakes and in Canada with upwards of 3000 volunteers expected to clean beaches and tributaries of the Great Lakes.
Our Rotary thanks to Jeff Winters, Doug Brown, Bob Lukens, Mark Eisenbarth, and Bob Scolnik for hosting this second year partnership project with Muskegon County Parks.  Thanks to all the great Rotarians, Interactors, and other private citizens who came out to help!
