Lake Lanier Association Update for September 2010
- Be sure to mark your calendar for the Shore Sweep event on Saturday, September 25th from 8:00AM-1:00PM. We are asking you to volunteer your time on this day to help clean up the loose Styrofoam and trash that has accumulated on our shore line. Compared to years when Lake Lanier was low, the task this year is much easier since it will not be necessary to drag as many large pieces of Styrofoam to the shore line. While there is some work involved, it truly is a labor of love and we think you will find the experience to be enjoyable and fulfilling.
- In an effort to accommodate individual schedules and availability, for Shore Sweep 2010, we have two advance locations. Beginning Monday, September 20th through Saturday, September 25th, there will be two advance locations accepting trash for the Shore Sweep effort. On the south end of the lake, Lanier Harbor Marina, and in the north end of the lake, the east side of Deer Island-just south of lake coordinate 21C-are both advance sites for trash collection. If you can’t make it on Saturday the 25th, and are in a position to help earlier in the week, please take your trash bags to the advance locations. For Lanier Harbor Marina, please place them in the dumpster on the ramp. For Deer Island, please place them by the Shore Sweep sign.
- Between now and September 25th, if you happen to see a particular area of the lake that needs attention in terms of debris removal, please email either the lake map coordinates, or GPS coordinates to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will compile a list and, based on volunteer availability, will do our best to get to all those locations.
- Some of you have asked about the new LLA oval stickers on some cars around town and boats on the lake. The stickers are available for a nominal purchase fee of $2.00-to help offset our cost of printing-at several area merchants. 1st Mate Marine, Aqualand Marina, The Dam Store, Habersham Marina, Hammond’s Fishing, Marine Specialties, and The Sandwich Market at Bald Ridge Marina all have stickers available for sale. By purchasing and displaying an LLA sticker, you are helping promote our efforts for a clean lake, full lake.
