Volunteers tackle Bushkill Stream cleanup

CLEANING UP — A group of volunteers gathered last week for a cleanup of the Bushkill Stream that runs through Fleischmanns. The event was organized by John Hoeko. Below, Rob Alverson and Yvonne Reuter, both members of Fleisch­manns First, haul debris ashore. Mark Loete and Jody Hoyt of Trout Unlimited and Vicky Szerko, Roy Todd, Peter Marx and Winifred Zubin, all members of Fleischmanns First, also volunteered. At the end of the day, all participants enjoyed free food, ice cream, and refreshments provided by La Cabana Restaurant, the Fleischmannns-Pine Hill Rotary and the Fleischmannns Supermarket. Trash bags and gloves were provided by CWC. The dumpster was provided by Mountain Valley Landscaping and Firewood.
