Thank you to all the volunteers to help clean up the mighty Mississippi Sept. 22. About 30 people took part of the Great Mississippi River Cleanup.
Thanks to Living Lands & Waters, who helped sponsor the event; Bob Dillon who secured volunteer boaters and boats from the Hannibal Boat Club and Scipio Marina; and Java Jive which donated lunch.
The volunteers picked up hundreds of pounds of trash, including a picnic table, tires, Styrofoam, bottles, gas cans, chicken wire and scrap metal. A special thank you to members of the media who helped get the word out about how to volunteer.
Thanks to everyone who helped make the cleanup a success. Look for Hannibal Parks & Recreation to sponsor the cleanup annually.
