PENNSYLVANIA, Perry County CD – A group of 20 dedicated Keep Perry County Beautiful volunteers and Perry County Conservation District staff came with kayaks and canoes for the Juniata River Clean-Up between the Newport River Bridge and the Howe Twp. boat access on Aug. 24.
“Someone should call Mike Rowe from ‘Dirty Jobs’,” said Kristie Smith, Keep Perry County Beautiful coordinator. “Because that’s exactly what this river clean-up is — dirty!”
Those who deserved recognition for their clean-up efforts include: Lauren Chubb and her daughters, Ashley and Alexis; students Rachael Filip and Amiyah Priebe, who represented the Newport Environmental Club; Peg Olsen and Van Troutman; Mike Rudy; Fred and Melanie Wertz; Ann Miller; Dean Hench; Ashley Lenig; Bob and Yvonne Shoop; Dale Shoop; and Roger Austin. Conservation District staff in attendance were Kristie Smith, Ben Smith and Lauren Leinbach.
