Clean up at Giant Rock with great people

"I watch them at night pull up and unload trash." He asked "What can I do?"  It was fantastic to hear and see people wanting to make a difference!

This clean up project was a good 125 people on quads, bikes, in jeeps, trucks, vans and cars. There was a BBQ lunch donated by a local restaurant and a raffle in which everyone who participated received a ticket.

The real story here is this community clean up started with two people. Dan and Becky, a couple who have a local retreat there, saw the trash taking over and decided one day to go out and "pack out some trash". Their friends joined in that first year and the effort has since grown into an annual event, even the local newspaper gets involved to advertise the community project. The restaurant donates lunch ever year and the local landfill does not charge for the dump that's needed after all the trash is collected.

We are happy to share this story. A shinning example of what people can do! When we, as individuals, come together, we form a much larger group. We make an impact together!

Thanks Giant Rock, you've got great people!

See you next time! Enjoying the adventure,
Tacomasuz
