Boy Scouts Turn Out For Clean Up Day!
The boy scouts gathered a fantastic group of people who worked very hard at Bertram Clean Up Day! They said it was about 100 kids but I think it was a lot more with all the troupe leaders and parents and other volunteers.
They cleared the entire section of Buckthorn that was laid out and kept right on going. They picked all the rocks in a designated section, cleared out old broken down docks and other structures. I saw
some picking up trash and others cleaning the dead wood out of the dam between Bertram and Long. They worked right through the rain and I thought they did a great job! I think they appreciated the Friends of Bertram Lakes being there to help out too.
Big shout out to Eagle Scout project leader, Mitch Walker, who had a huge job arranging and directing all the volunteers. He did a great job! Thanks to everyone for another successful Bertram Clean Up Day!
