Hello All,

This is our first attempt at an official news letter. No worries were still the same small town company you know and love haha. We have some interesting things going on here lately and I would also like to follow up on some past projects you may be wondering about.

Mono Bins

Remember our mono bin project that we started a few months ago, well it’s still in the works we are waiting on a day to mesh schedules with D.I.G.F. to go out and install these bins around the North Fork. Hopefully we will have that coming to you soon. Also our Adopt a Stream signs that we ordered 8 months ago still have not come in. No we didn’t un-adopt the river, it’s just a long process making signs to put everywhere. I’m hopeful that project will also be able to be completed before the warm weather season hits and we get back to cleaning. On that we would like to go ahead a pre thank V.D.O.T. for donating sign posts and the man power to put these guys up for us. Thanks guys!


Adopt a Stream

We have a few grants out right now as you might remember, so keep your fingers crossed on those.

Also we are hoping by tomorrow to know whether we have the legendary Watermelon Park as our new venue for Riverfest 2012. Trust me folks you are not going to want to miss this year. We will be doubling what we normally provide for you if everything works out. I would like to personally thank Mr. Mike Capanelli the parks GM for all his help and cooperation in this matter. If you ever get to meet this man give him a slap on the back for me. He has done tremendous things for us, both festival related and other.

If I’m not mistaken Earth Korps will be lecturing about community involvement at Central Highschool later in the month. I’m sure there will be excellent stories to tell about that.

Also we are still trying to get that volunteer list up folks. This is not so wee can send you a bunch of junk mail. We need to show a strong volunteer base to increase the over all substanciability  of Earth Korps. It will also make our cleans much easier to announce to everyone in the summer. So even if you only plan on helping one time this summer send your e-mail address to jenniferndalke@gmail.com.

I’m sure I’ve forgotten quite a few things but beyond that I would like to thank our team and our board and everyone who supports cleaner water and promotes better life in Shenandoah and the surrounding counties. It would not be possible without any of you. I thank you and so does your river and it’s inhabitants.
