Hello good people,
Just thought I would let everyone know that our beloved company truck the Dragonfly is in the process of having open engine surgery due to a blown headgasket. Hopefully she will be back on the road and hauling river trash in no time. The season is coming in and as soon as our truck is in commission we will be announcing clean-ups and doing what we do best. Thanks to all those who support our mission to protect and restore the Shenandoah River.

REGISTRATION OPENS FOR CLEAN THE BAY DAY
HAMPTON ROADS, VA – The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) and its partners are now recruiting volunteers to clean up shoreline litter for the 23rd Annual Clean the Bay Day, Saturday, June 4, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
Clean the Bay Day is a hands-on opportunity for individuals, families, businesses, and groups to join CBF, municipalities, concerned organizations, and businesses in one of the largest volunteer cleanup efforts in Virginia. The annual project, managed by CBF, involves thousands of Virginia citizens working on foot and by boat to restore and protect the Chesapeake Bay, its rivers, and streams. The event also raises public awareness about pollution issues beneath the surface. Last year, 7,430 volunteers removed 217,641 lbs of debris at 245 sites along 419 miles of Chesapeake Bay watershed shorelines.
Cleanup sites are available throughout Hampton Roads, Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Northern, and Central Virginia. To register, visit cbf.org/clean, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-800/SAVEBAY.
We would like to give a great big Earth Korps thank you to our 4 new sponsors Mossy Creek Fly Shop, Appalachian Voices, Headstash.com, and Magazine 33. Thanks guys and gals for the continuing support of the Shenandoah River Clean-up Project. Clean-ups will be underway as soon as we get the old company truck back on the road. We’ve had some head gasket issues, but she’ll be back at it in no time.
We have been slammed here lately trying to bring you the best of the best for river clean-up. Check out our new Merch Shop available at our website. http://earthkorps.webs.com/apps/cafepress_shop/ I think you’ll find quite a few interesting items on board.
Just thought I would catch everyone up on a bit of exciting news. We are currently in the process of applying to become a Waterkeeper Alliance Member. So wish us luck because this will really put us on the map and help us to get our job done the way we want to.
Well Folks it’s finally happened. We’ve been waiting since about June of last year, but the I.R.S. has finally gotten back to us and it’s official Earth Korps is a registered 501 (c) 3. I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who supports us.
