OMB Volunteers Collect 1750 Pounds of Trash from Mountain Island Lake

On Monday, July 9th, employees of The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery (OMB) joined CRF for our 3rd annual OMB summer cleanup and cookout on Mountain Island Lake. We collected 50 bags worth of trash from different areas around the lake, totaling around 1,750 pounds. The OMB crew set a new record for themselves at this year’s cleanup, and we’re so proud! A lot less garbage will end up in our waterways thanks to the 20 volunteers who participated.

The cleanup was coordinated and led by Chuck, our MIL Lakekeeper and Kerry, our long-time volunteer. A huge thanks to them for hosting the cleanup and a cookout at their home afterward!
