According to a press release regarding this year's River Sweep, the event was a huge success. More than 1,000 volunteers participated in the clean-up project on April 26 and 15 yards of trash and debris was removed at Port's Marina Park. Volunteers at the Tome School for Boys site at Bainbridge, including the members of Perryville High School's lacrosse teams, removed five dump truck loads of trash and 34 bags of debris. Thirty bags of trash were collected at the Octoraro Creek area and 100 bags of trash and debris were removed from the Conowingo Creek Boat Launch. Kudos to all the volunteers!
