Keep Garland Beautiful sponsors the annual spring Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off, a program supported by Texas Department of Transportation and Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup.
On Saturday, March 21, 2015, Keep Garland Beautiful Volunteers will join volunteers from Keep Rowlett Beautiful to clean up part of the Lake Ray Hubbard Shoreline.
Keep Garland Beautiful is joining Keep Rowlett Beautiful to clean up the shoreline of Lake Ray Hubbard that is southern gateway to Garland (Rowlett Road). Adults and children 10 yrs. or older are invited to join this cleanup devoted to picking up litter and debris on the lakeshore.
Individuals, families, church and school groups, homeowner/neighborhood associations are encouraged to do their part to help clean up our beautiful shoreline. The drought has exposed so much litter and debris, and it will take many volunteers from both cities to make an impact.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the event across from the Lake Ray Hubbard Marina Del Rey, 2413 Rowlett, Rd., Garland. On Cleanup Day, park at the marina and cross the street to register and receive cleanup instructions. Traffic control will be available.
All volunteers are invited back to registration after the cleanup for a volunteer appreciation luncheon, to listen to music and share stories of the day. Volunteers will take part in prize drawings of donated goods and services. The grand prize is a kayak.
