Haw River Assembly Park Clean-Ups
Kuddos to the Haw River Assembly (HRA), who organized two park clean-ups in recent weeks. The first clean-up was along the new Robeson Creek Greenway near the new bridge. Town Public Works provided a dump truck and about 80 of Horton Middle School science students filled it in 5 hours. Together they gathered 80 bags, about one per student! This is in addition to the large bulky items like old refrigerators, a mattress, a truck rear suspension and other fine treasures.
Catherine Deininger with the HRA partnered with 8th grade science teacher Jamie Callicutt to improve the greenway. The kids seems to have a lot of fun and really made a huge difference.

The second clean-up was along the Haw River at the 15-501 Paddle Access near the Bynum Dam. This time the HRA worked with the Carolina Canoe Club for a land and water spruce up. I ran into Ken and Debbie Tunnell who were leading the clean-up efforts on the Haw last Saturday. They couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.
