You know the Drill ! The List is long and the need is great! Come out and let’s get the Club ready for Winter. Please bring yard cleanup tools, like rakes, brooms, blowers or what have you. If you want to compete in the Chili Cook-off, make a batch of your best stuff and bring it. A Fabulous Trophy will go to the winner, I will be bringing chili with a secret ingredient this year (no, not goat). We will post the list of duty items here, when I get the information from our Yardmaster. Thanks and I hope we all have a good time and a productive day. The fun starts at 10am. Maybe bring some stuff that goes good with chili or a dessert like Rum baba or something.

Trashmasters Classic – September 15th!

The Friends of Barren River Lake and Park is organizing a hands-on opportunity to be good environmental stewards with the 31st annual Trashmasters Classic Lakeshore Cleanup at Barren River Lake on Sept. 15 from 8 to 11:30 a.m.

“This cleanup is important for a couple reasons – it gives the community a chance to come together and pitch in and be a part of something bigger than themselves,” said Holly Myers, Army Corps of Engineers park ranger, and “it really makes a difference in the health and welfare of the lake itself,” in addition to the surrounding wildlife and water ecosystem.

Check-in will be from 8 to 9 a.m. at various locations: Baileys Point, the Narrows, Barren River Lake State Resort Park, Port Oliver and Walnut Creek. At each station, pontoon boats will shuttle volunteers to the shoreline to pick up trash. Trash bags and gloves will be provided, but bring your own water and sunscreen.
