Trash Bash Community Cleanup

Clear Lakers are so great at pitching in for their community!

And we’re hoping to do that again this year, with a cleanup week of April 19-24th.

We do want everyone to be safe, of course, and adhere to social distancing of staying a minimum of 6 feet from each other, wear masks when possible. If you are part of a team, think of it as a virtual team and take turns at the site.

We’ll post updates on where the trash can be dumped as we get closer to the date.

But in the meantime, reserve your favorite cleanup site(s) by registering today!  Thank you!

Register now!

Thank you and BE SAFE!

Green Jacket Challenge

Augusta isn’t the only place to win the coveted “Green Jacket” in April. We have our own competition.

The winner is based on the following factors: number of years helping with the community cleanup; difficulty of cleanup site; number of volunteers. (Plus complex algorithm, shrouded in the tradition and mystery of the Masters,)

Winning teams have their name embroidered on the Green Jacket. Master’s Challenge Title Holders include

  • 2020 – Clear Lake Evening Lions
  • 2019 – North Iowa touring Club, North Iowa Spin, Spin and Devo, and Wayne’s Ski and Cycle.
