On Saturday, May 4, Volunteers joined CRF for the Fishing Creek Lake cleanup in Lancaster, South Carolina.

We collected 126 large bags of trash, 17 tires, 8 rusted metal chairs, a wooden porch swing, a wooden ladder, a 1965 Frigidaire cooler, 3 refrigerant tanks, 1 fire extinguisher, an Edgewater sign, a plastic Adirondack chair, and other miscellaneous items, totaling an estimated 4,400 Estimated Pounds. A lot less garbage will end up in our waterways thanks to the 47 volunteers who participated.

The cleanup was coordinated and led by Karen, a dedicated CRF volunteer and Wyatt, an Eagle Scout who for years knew he wanted his Eagle Scout Service Project to be organizing a major cleanup of Fishing Creek Lake. A huge thanks to coordinators and volunteers for putting together a successful event!

Thank you to all of the volunteers and boat captains who worked hard to make Fishing Creek Lake cleaner.
