Lakeshore cleanup photo #1All hands on deck!

Attention, friends of Lake Cochituate and Cochituate State Park.  The park’s annual shoreline clean-up is Saturday, June 13, 9:00 a.m.—noon. This is your chance to pitch in and help the Department of Conservation and Recreation staff keep the park’s water shining blue, beaches pristine and shoreline lush green.  Bob and Sandy Dreissig from South Pond are again kindly running the event.  Call Bob at 508-314-7601 or e-mail and let him know you’ll be there.  We especially need help from those of you with boats.  With or without, Bob will give you a specific location around the lake to adopt for the morning.  He’ll also provide trash bags and pick sticks.  Boats will ferry volunteers to and from sites.  It really doesn’t take long…just clean your assigned spot and return the bags of trash via boat ride to Bob at the main boat ramp.  Meet at the boat ramp at the park main entrance on Rt. 30 at 9:00.  Bring work gloves and footwear that can get wet.  High shool students—bring your community service forms and Bob can sign your volunteer hours.
