Letter: LL&W says thanks to all who help protect our rivers
Comment on this story
I've chosen one word to describe 2012: Productive!
Instead of spending literally thousands of hours on upkeep and repairs to the old floating classroom/headquarters barge, we devoted more time to our mission because of the launching of our new barge, Teamwork. We were able to direct our efforts toward cleaning America's rivers, educating students and teachers about ways to protect and preserve our waterways, growing and make a difference by becoming involved.
So far this year we've hosted a record 140 events, with more scheduled through Dec. 10 when we'll host our final cleanup of the year before shutting down the barges for the winter.
Thanks to our crew, staff, board, and all of you who have supported our efforts in so many ways. It's because of you that we're able to do what we do. We hope you'll continue to support us as we work hard to achieve even higher goals set for next year. No matter how big or small, all donations are greatly appreciated and needed to continue our efforts.
Looking forward to seeing you on the river soon!
