Camp Creek Township’s annual Community Clean-Up Day, held on Saturday, May 18, was successful, according to Donnie Dyke, township trustee, with 80 people taking part in the event, now in its 10th year.
The day began at 8 a.m. with coffee and doughnuts for everyone who showed up, and then the crews cleaned ditch lines until 12 noon. The group met back at the township building for a hot lunch provided by the township trustees, followed by pictures with Spotless the Litter Hound.
“The crews hit the road again and worked till 4 p.m.,” Dyke said.
“For the people who missed this year’s clean-up day, you will have another chance to help next year (hint, hint),” he stated.
