Riverwalk Yacht Club launches "Tackle Trash on the Tennesee"

Riverwalk Yacht Club launches “Tackle Trash on the Tennessee”

Decatur, Al -- All hands are welcome to the Riverwalk Marina to help pick up trash from the banks of the beautiful Tennessee river. The Riverwalk Yacht Club and Decatur Parks and Recreation Department are proud to sponser this inaugral annual event. 

“The Tennessee river provides us with an enormous benefits and this is just a little way to give something back. Boaters are needed boaters that are willing to fill up trash bags with garbage collected from the Decatur area riverbank,” says event organizer and yacht club member, Cecil Chaney.  Volunteers should bring a dip net some old tennis shoes just in case they get a little wet.  At least two people in each boat will be needed for safety and to maintain a distance from the riverside rocks.  

Garbage bags will be provided.

Chaney adds, “If you love the river as much as we do then come on out and help. Launch your boat at 9:00 a.m. on June the 9th and have a great day on the river. We should finish up by 2:00 p.m. at the marina where we will take a photo of the filled trash bags and of all volunteers who helped collect them.”
