Current Projects

8th Annual Lake Clean-Up a success

 

To all who participated in the 8th Annual Lake Clean-Up on June 2nd, a great big "THANK YOU". We know there were those who could not help on the day of the event but helped in one way or another. Some of our residents took their debris to their county convenience center. We especially want to thank those who take the time to dispose of their litter properly instead of throwing it out along the road. If we could just get that message to more people, it would be so rewarding.

 

Keeping Lake Gaston looking neat and well groomed is a year round project, not just one day. We do appreciate each of you who take the time to pick up the litter along the road and shorelines. Our goal is to make our lake residents aware of this ongoing project. It is good to keep a bag for trash on your boat to help keep our shorelines looking good.

 

The Lake Clean-Up Committee has met to wrap up this year’s event and to evaluate the online surveys that have been received with your comments and suggestions. We do appreciate those who took the time to complete the survey. We plan on acting on the suggestions that we feel will work.

The dumpsters at Morningstar Marina and Washburn’s Marina were donated by Waste Industries again this year. We are very thankful for their continued support. We also would like to thank Morningstar Marina and Washburn’s Marina for allowing us to have the dumpsters put on their property.

The Lake Gaston Striper Club cleaned up several islands on Lake Gaston and the U. S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 93 was on hand for any emergencies. Others who supported Lake Clean-Up are the Lake Gaston Water Safety Council and the FABS.

 

Also, to all the road crews from Brunswick, Mecklenburg, Warren, Halifax and Northampton Counties who helped to clean up the roads around the lake. And to those who cleaned up on the water. Last, but certainly not least, to the many volunteers and committee members who staffed the dumpsters and worked to make the event a success, a much appreciated thank you.

 

Hoping that everyone is having a good summer……stay safe.
