On Wednesday, May 24, the Lake Okabena Improvement Association hosted its annual Lake Okabena cleanup. I want to thank the 80 volunteers who helped in the lake cleanup. All of the public shoreline of Lake Okabena was covered, which is approximately three miles. There were 45 bags of trash and three yards of sticks collected.

 

I also want to thank Burger King for donating a free meal to all the volunteers, and also the city of Worthington staff who picked up the garbage bags and sticks.
