Come get dirty to help us get the Black River cleaner! The 18th Annual RiverSweep is happening on Saturday, September 9th starting at 8 AM and ending at 12 NOON.


Register at HQ -- in Springfield, we'll be at the footbridge in the Shopping Plaza; in Ludlow, we'll be in the gazebo on the town green in Veterans Park. Pick a site to work, grab some trash bags and work gloves (or bring your favorite pair of gloves), fill up on water, and go tackle the trash! Bring your haul back to HQ so it can be tallied and sorted; wash your hands so you can enjoy your free tee shirt and a yummy lunch, compliments of local supporters - in Springfield, Young's Furniture & Appliance will grill up hot dogs for everyone; in Ludlow, you'll receive a coupon for a free slice of amazing cheese pizza at Goodman's American Pie. This year, all volunteers will be entered to win cool prizes donated by local businesses, such as a $25 gift certificate from the Ludlow Cooking Company, home of the famous Lobster Roll.
