Volunteers sought for Saturday's 'Rake the Lake' cleanup in Sutton
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The third annual "Rake the Lake" Spring Cleanup at Sutton Lake will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 12.
"Rake the Lake" is open to everyone, and past events have included families, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and friends who help make Sutton Lake a little bit brighter.
Sutton Lake staff members can suggest an area in particular need of attention and will provide trash bags, gloves, buckets for sharp objects and collection service around the lake.
The event is hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, Sutton Lake Marina and the Braxton Citizen's News.
At the conclusion of the day, local businesses sponsor a cookout at Sutton Lake Marina to thank those who participate. The first 200 registered participants also receive a T-shirt.To volunteer, call the Sutton Lake Project Office at 304-765-2816 or e-mail SuttonLake@usace.army.mil to register.
