Help Clean Up the Tygart River

It’s amazing what happens when a few people who care come together to make a difference in the community. It is also wonderful what happens when others join them in those tasks. That’s why Elkinite is urging folks to take a little time off this weekend to join the Elkins Make it Shine group for for a river cleanup in downtown Elkins that was organized by Jeff Kresch and Mayor Broughton.

Folks are to meet at the Wilson Street swinging bridge Saturday August 6 at 9 AM. From there crews will divide up to pick up litter, trash, branches, and other debris. You can choose to walk the shoreline, wade in the water, or pick up trash by boat.
