Spring cleaning for Dale Hollow roads on April 16

April 16, 2016

On April 16, volunteers are invited to pick up litter along lake
roads during the sixth annual Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup.


Hundreds of volunteers are expected, and they will receive a
free lunch and will be entered into a drawing for door prizes. Free T-shirts
will be given away, while supplies last.


“It really makes a difference, and
people really notice the efforts made here to keep our county clean,” said
Cumberland County Judge-Executive John A. Phelps, Jr.


“I often hear many folks from other counties and other parts
of Kentucky and even other states brag about, how clean Cumberland County is,”
he said. “I believe we have Eastern Kentucky PRIDE, our local staff and our
wonderful community volunteers to thank for such wonderful comments made by our
visitors to the area.”


“‘No Place Like Home’ is our Spring Cleanup theme this year,
and that’s certainly true for the communities around Dale Hollow Lake,” said
PRIDE’s Tammie Wilson. “This area is beautiful, and the lake is a special


“We all know that our homes need a spring cleaning each
year, and it’s more fun when we work together,” she said. “Please bring your
family and friends to volunteer on April 16.”


“The Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup has become one of the most
successful PRIDE events in the region, and I want to thank the local sponsors
for their leadership,” Wilson added. “They are the Cumberland County Fiscal
Court, Clinton County Fiscal Court, Dale Hollow State Resort Park, Hendricks
Creek Resort and Sulphur Creek Resort.”


On April 16, volunteer registration will begin at 9 a.m. CT
at these locations: Hendricks Creek Dock, Sulphur Creek Dock and the Dale Hollow State Resort Park picnic area.


At registration, volunteers will receive trash bags, gloves
and safety vests. They will be directed to an area to clean. Safe,
age-appropriate cleanup areas will be available for groups with children, such
as schools and churches.


From 10 a.m. until Noon, volunteers will pick up litter
along the roads around the lake.


At Noon, volunteers will gather for a free cook-out at the
picnic area at Dale Hollow State Resort Park. The door prize drawing will be
held during the cook-out.


The Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup is part of the PRIDE Spring
Cleanup campaign across 42 counties of southern and eastern Kentucky. The
region-wide PRIDE Spring Cleanup is sponsored by Outdoor Venture Corporation
and Walmart.
