The 2014 All Lake Clean Up Day on Claytor Lake got kicked off early as people from all over Claytor Lake got together to help rid our beautiful lake of trash from its shoreline and coves. Organized by FOCL and our sponsors AEP, Pulaski County Board of Supervisors, Virginia Eagle Distributing, Virginia Shoreline, Claytor Lake Watersports, Conrad’s Marina, The Rockhouse Marina, The Waterway Cafe, and The Claytor Lake State Park, the All Lake Clean Up Day hauled in close to 70 bags of trash, 6 tires, 1 flashboard, 5 large pieces of styrofoam, plastic molding, trash cans, chairs, and even a table!
Fueled by FOCL Board Members, Staff and Crew Cheri Strenz, Jackson Beamer, Larry Moore, Ted Bostic, Darryl Sarver, Larry Killough, Jeff Arnold, Larry Bandolin, Mike Hoffman, Buddy Johnston, Laura Bullard, Bill Cunningham, Jeff Caldwell, Jerry Dean, and Dale Gravely and expanding into neighborhoods all over Claytor Lake, our 2014 Clean Up Day was a success and vital to keeping our lake clean. Ronnie Nichols from Pulaski County was instrumental in providing FOCL with dumpsters located all over Claytor Lake giving anyone helping an easy access to unload their bags and trash.
Other notable volunteers were Janet Johnston, Ann Bullard, Steve Rapp, Jamie Riggins of Virginia Shoreline, and Jerry & Sherry Vaughn.
