New River Clean Up
We’re partnering with the New River Conservancy for the second year in a row to do a trash pickup of the beloved New River! PLEASE REGISTER IN THE LINK ABOVE BY THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1ST! We need to get a headcount to make sure we have enough boats, food, and materials. Canyon Rim Rotary Club has generously offered to provide snacks/lunch for volunteers. The clean up will start at 9, so we’ll be meeting at a TBD location to set shuttle. Folks should plan to spend 5ish hours on the water. We’d like everyone to dress for cool weather and for COVID safety, so wear closed-toe shoes, bring extra water, and bring a mask to wear for the shuttle ride. We will be able to follow social distancing guidelines because each person gets their own water craft and cleaning tools.Volunteers will be provided extra water, gloves, bags, tire J-hooks and trash pinchers.

Kindness Spotlight: Laura Floyd
“Since this virus started, I have had the chance to volunteer at the CODA Kitchen: moving items and laughing are always a guarantee! I just have to give a shout out to an UNSUNG HERO in our community!!!! Lauren Floyd and her staff of more than 40 prepare, transport, and serve approximately 27,000 meals in Fayette and Raleigh counties a month!!!! YES, I said 27,000!!!! They also work on snack packs, boxes of food to send home over weekends, providing extras for families in need, etc etc! They have been doing this since the schools were shut down in March and just keep finding MORE ways to help in the community! In addition to all the food, she has put together baskets to take to businesses to say “Thank You” for working hard, taken coffee and treats to teachers to let them know they are appreciated, and always has a positive word for anyone that needs it!You hear all the time about the food shortage/issues in our state and here is this amazing woman and her amazing staff showing us how to help others!!!Thank you Lauren for always smiling and finding a way to help our community!” Cindy Chamberlin
