Keeping DeGray Lake Beautiful is still going strong thanks to you. The shoreline cleanup for 2013 was a success! We had 252 individuals pick up 1.5 tons of trash. Thank you everyone for your hard work and dedication in keeping our lake and communities clean. Wal-Mart did an awesome job on the food and again brought participants for the cleanup.
Each year individuals, families, employee groups, fishing and scuba clubs, church groups, scout troops and school groups, participate in this event. We would love to have the support of your organization in this years’ Clean-Up. In recognition of your support we will acknowledge your contribution at the Clean-Up. We want to thank all the businesses and volunteers that have supported us throughout the years; you have been the backbone of our success.
We will be giving participants of the DeGray Lake shoreline cleanup a T-shirt this year, with company names or logos. The cost will be $100 per logo. We will be giving out approximately 500 shirts and everyone proudly wears these shirts year after year.
If you would like to donate to have your business name/logo on the t-shirt, deadline is August 20, 2014!
