The Boone Sunrise Rotary Club cleaned up a portion of the New River in Boone on Saturday, September 11th.
After observing a moment of silence to remember the victims of 9/11, 18 Rotarians waded through the banks of the river to collect debris, under the leadership of our Service Projects Chair, Lynne Mason.
The Boone Sunrise Rotary Club is proud to maintain its Adopt-A-Stream within the headwaters of the New River, which one of the oldest rivers in North America.
The club plans at least two river clean-up days each year. If you or your organization are interested in assisting the Boone Sunrise Rotary Club with this, or any other service project, please email Lynne Mason for more details.
