Friends of Walton Lake invite you to help them remove garbage anyway you can as part of the Clean-up Walton Lake this coming weekend.
The effort takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24, 25 and 26, any time you can spare between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The staging area is where Lakes Road meets Cromwell Hill Road (opposite the former Bocci’s Restaurant).
Parking will be available at the soon-to-open Monarca Cantina at the corner of Lakes Road and Cromwell Hill Road, directly opposite Walton Lake.
Simply walk across Lakes Road to join the friends or use your boat to bring the garbage to them.
“This is an entire clean–up of Walton Lake. No item is too small,” organizers said in the press release detailing the effort. “The Friends of Walton Lake Team can handle larger items.”
