River Clean Up a success because of sponsors and volunteers

On July 11, The Glenwood Springs River Commission held its annual River Clean Up. It was a great day celebrating the beautiful setting along the rivers of Glenwood Springs. There were several other large events along the river that day, but many of you turned out to help clean up.

Volunteers collected numerous bags of trash from Grizzly Creek to South Canyon. Many families came together and enjoyed the live music afterwards. The River Commission has held this event for 15 years, and we are continually impressed with all the hard work the volunteers contribute.

The commission would like to sincerely thank all those that made this wonderful, productive day possible. Thank you to Moe’s for the great set up at the park. Thank you to Coke for providing drinks and to the Glenwood Canyon Brew Pub for the cold beer. Thank you to The Pullman restaurant for the prize donation. We also want to thank American National Bank, Alpine Bank, Alpine Quest Sports, the Colorado River District, and Trout Unlimited for their donations. A special thank-you goes out to Jeff Rice and his band, Just Joan; they donated their time and awesome entertainment after a morning of clean up.

This event would not be possible without the volunteers. Thank you to all of you, and thank you to the other members of the River Commission for all your help organizing and making the day a huge success for the rivers of our beautiful city.
