Bay Village waterways clean-up scheduled
The Bay Village Waterways Clean-up Day sponsored by The Bay Village Foundation, Bay High Project Earth Club, Bay Village Green Team and the Scouts will be held on Saturday, Sept. 23. All are welcome to meet at the Bay Middle School cafeteria to sign in by 11:00 a.m. Volunteers of all ages will go out in groups to clean up Bay's waterways and surrounding areas. Children should be accompanied by a parent or guardian or bring a signed permission slip. Students, parents, scouts and other groups looking for service projects are welcome to participate.
The city will provide trash bags and gloves for use in picking up debris along Cahoon Creek, Columbia Park, Bay Boat Club and other areas of the Lake Erie waterfront. Participants are asked to wear boots and clothes they don't mind getting muddy or wet. The group will finish up back at the middle school at 1:00 p.m., where lunch will be provided by The Bay Village Foundation. City workers will pick up the debris from the middle school. Clean-up Day and the trash pick up will take place rain or shine.
Since The Bay Village Foundation began this activity in 2006, Bay Waterways Clean-up Day has blossomed into a well-organized, twice-yearly project headed by Project Earth Club of Bay High School now under the direction of Joe Cheney, Bay High teacher and leader of the club. This year's effort is chaired by Bay Village Foundation trustee, Mike Romanchek and Bay Village Foundation student trustees, Maggie Williams, Maddie Edgerly, Everest McKenna and Chris Eifert, who will plan and deliver the lunch for the hungry crowd, funded by The Bay Village Foundation.
