Beautification Successes

Wow, we had a successful week!   On Friday, thanks to the cooperative efforts of the Friends of Indian River, the City of Chesapeake Public Works, the Sheriff's Office, and a multitude of supporting agencies, we've planted around 30 trees along Indian River Road just east of the bridge. Fifteen community volunteers who took time off on Friday to make this happen.    You can find photos of the planting at https://www.facebook.com/media/set (no Facebook account required).

Saturday morning, ten volunteers came out again to participate in the Great American Cleanup. Working along Indian River Road and around the shoreline at the bridge, we collected 18 bags of trash and a tire; about half from along the street and half from around the bridge. Another big Thank You to the the dedicated crew!

These efforts to beautify our community would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers.   On behalf of the entire community, we extend a heartfelt Thank You to all our volunteers.

Sincerely,
Rogard Ross
President, Friends of Indian River
