White Rock Lake Shoreline Spruce-Up

Always the second Saturday of the month – March 11 this month. We are having a “deep clean” this month! The shoreline vegetation has died back, exposing litter that was not previously visible or reachable. We want to get it removed before the spring growth returns. Enjoy the morning beauty of the lake by joining fellow UUs as we spruce up our adopted shoreline at White Rock Lake.  Meet in the parking lot south of Fisher and West Lawther at 8:30 am.  We provide the trash bags, gloves and reach-it tools.  All ages welcome. Contact Skip Leavitt for additional info at sleavitt52@gmail.com
