What started as a community project after frustrations over garbage and trash at the dam area in Dell Rapids has led to an annual event. The “3rd Annual River Cleanup Day” is planned for Saturday, June 20th starting at 9:00 a.m.
Kiley Stone organized the annual event in 2018 and is asking the community to join in the cleanup day to keep the local parks of Dell Rapids clean. Stone invites everyone to the event and says that folks can start a team, bring the kids, or grab a neighbor to help at the event.
The group will be cleaning up trash, glass, and other debris along the dam and along the river. Trash bags will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves to protect hands. It is also suggested to wear jeans, good shoes, a bright shirt, and a hat.
For more information, Stone can be contacted at 605-254-6913 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the event can be found on the Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1008816512868826/
