On behalf of the Vermilion River Stewardship, I would like to thank everyone who came out to our Vermilion River Clean-up on Sunday. There were 28 people who came out to help at Ella Lake for the Clean-up, and there were also others who opted to clean-up their own section of the Vermilion and connecting lakes – so a BIG THANK YOU to all who volunteered! A special thanks to the Basso Family and the Whitefish District Lion’s Club for providing a great barbecue for our clean-up volunteers!
It was a very cold day, with a sprinkling of snow, but a good time was had by all – and a huge pile of garbage was collected.
