We will be holding our annual Baxter Stream Clean Up for 
President’s Day Weekend on
Saturday, February 17, 2024
0900 – Noon

Quaranclean 26! Number 26 in a series!

Everyone welcome! This event was requested by Beta Club members who need service hours! Potential to earn 3 credit hours or 30 service points for Beta Club members. 

Please meet in the pool parking lot of the Baxter Close Y which is located at 857 Promenade Road, Fort Mill, SC 29708.

Please dress appropriately – for the weather, but wear old clothes and shoes because you may get wet or muddy.

Please bring a water bottle and don’t forget your Beta Club form. We will pick up in the cold and light rain. Volunteers can message Lisa Phillips by email at LRP1971@gmail.com or text at 803-818-8477.

Baxter Stream Clean Up was organized by Roman Phillips in April of 2020 to combat litter in the storm drains and streams near Lake Elliot. To date, his volunteers have successfully removed 20,000 pounds of litter within a one-mile radius of Lake Elliot. 

I am very grateful for all volunteers, but please emphasize they must actually participate and pick up litter at this event to receive service hour credit. In previous outings, many youth socialize or stay close to the Y and do not really participate in the pick up (as evidenced by low litter totals).
