2019 Vermilion River Clean-up – Wabagishik Lake

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came out on Saturday, the 29th of June, to help clean-up the Vermilion River and Wabagishik Lake.   A special thanks to the Basso Family, the Whitefish Lion’s Club, and Chris’s Your Independent Grocers, for providing our volunteers with a hot and tasty lunch.  As you can see we collected a lot of garbage again this year – a very productive and fun day!!   The poison ivy was abundant, so please remind us next year to hold the event earlier when plants are not sprouting. :-/

Also thank you to Hiamedia for donating our beautiful new Vermilion River Clean-up signage!  You can reach Hiamedia through their website at: www.hiamedia.com
