September News!!

Hey Folks,

I figured it was getting to be about time for an update of all around Earth Korps info. Did you know that we are up over 54,000 pounds of trash removed from the Shenandoah River now.

It’s been a very quick 2 years but we’ve come a long way and that is due to our awesome support by not only our fans who push us on social media sites but also due to our awesome sponsors and folks who keep this organization going through monitary contributions.

We’d like to give a big thank to new sponsor Starr Rentals of Harrisonburg Va for sponsoring the Belgravia Beer Festival and Earth Korps by donating a big screen for the Beer Fest. We would also like to give a big thanks to the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce for working closely with us on severa events here lately and doing thier part to spread the word about Earth Korps fundraisers and upcoming events. Also Shentel for doing another County Conversations piece on Earth Korps and upcoming Belgravia Beer Fest. Our video can be seen on Simply Locals Facebook page.

Beer Fest is coming fast and we expect to see you all there. As an added perk we will be featuring the VA Tech Game on a big screen outside of the beer fest as well. So bring a lawn chair and wear your tech garb.

River Clean 9/11/12

Hey folks,

Long time no see. We have been up to our eye balls in work trying to bring you great projects and river conservation. We are in the midst of a large project right now with the Shenandoah Riverkeeper and a few other organizations to do some work to a public boat landing, but I’ll go into that more when the time comes.

Hope you see us on tv3 soon as we just did a story with Friends of the North Fork of the Shenadoah River about our organizations and about our upcoming events. Ours being the Belgravia Beer and Wine Festival, which has pre-sale tickets available at http://www.earthkorps.org.

We did a clean the other day and probably found the coolest thing that I have ever found in the river, it is called a Ganesha and is the Hindu symbol for good luck. It is actually hindu god of good luck and health and prosperity and all of those things that everyone always hopes they end up with at the end of the day. I thought that was a pretty neat one. Our clean yielded quite a few tires and a large metal canister of some sort. We only had one boat with us, but we filled that boat to the brim, and it was sketchy to say the least of the float back. I hope you enjoy it because we went through a lot on this load. Until next time, thanks to everyone who supports Earth Korps and our mission to clean the Shenandoah River watershed.

Finally made it in our first book!!

Hey folks,

I thought I would show you all this awesome surprise I got in the mail the other day. A while back I had done an interview with a lady from Fredrick County Public Works and forgot all about it until I got this package in the mail with these awesome little books inside. I don’t know if you will be able to read the article from the pictures, but I put them on here anyway. Thanks Gloria for seeing our cause as worthy to be in this book! Stay tuned for more news.
