The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort Hosts 10th Annual River Road Cleanup
Tuesday, March 19, 2013 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) – The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is hosting its 10th Annual River Road Clean-Up on Saturday, April 20th from 8:00 am – 11:30 am, followed by an appreciation luncheon at The Gem and Keystone Brewpub.
For ten straight years, Shawnee has worked in partnership with PENNDOT’s Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Day. Community members along with Shawnee employees have shared the benefit of knowing their efforts have positively impacted the environment along river road. Local sponsors of the event are: The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort, The Shawnee Institute LTD, The Gem and Keystone, and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
Each year, over a hundred of bags of waste is removed from River Road restoring the traveled roadway to its scenic roots. In an effort to ensure the safety of the volunteers, township officials close a portion of River Road for the morning. By doing so, the River Road Cleanup makes for a very good family activity.
Registration is open to the resort guest and local community. The first 50 to pre-register are eligible to receive a t-shirt commemorating the event. Directly following the clean-up, an appreciation luncheon will be offered to volunteers at The Gem and Keystone Brewpub.
Registration is from 8:00 am – 8:30 am at the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort – follow signs to the River Sanctuary. At registration, volunteers will be given garbage bags, gloves, a safety vest, and safety instructions. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Rob Howell, General Manager for The Shawnee Inn states, “Time flies, ten years ago Jackie Ocker, Secretary and Treasurer of Smithfield Township, informed Shawnee of the partnership available for road clean-ups with PennDot. I had heard about the statewide campaign called ‘Great PA Clean-Up’ before but never realized how easy they make it to implement. I would like to give a big thanks to all of the volunteers and my staff who this event possible.”
To register for the River Road Cleanup, please contact Tammy at: 570-424-4050 extension 1405.
