Members Support 2016 Big Sweep
On Saturday, September 10, 2016, Rotarian Don Huneycutt-Team Captain and 13 other Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Hendersonville cleaned out 2,030 lbs. of debris from Mud Creek. Under the leadership of Don Huneycutt, 13 volunteers removed car and tractor trailer tires, and other trash that cluttered the waterway.
In the past 6 years, it has not been unusual for our team to remove up to 2000 lbs of debris from Mud Creek in a 4 hour period.” “It takes teamwork and hard work to safely collect all the items from both the creek and the banks and then transfer everything to a central collection point for pickup by the city. Teamwork and hard work also make for a satisfying and fun time” says Big Sweep team captain, Don Huneycutt.
In 2005, the club joined a NC program called Adopt-A-Stream, dedicated to improving the conditions of the water sources in our community. Originally working with the Environmental & Conservation Organization (ECO), now known as MountainTrue, Rotary adopted a portion of Mud Creek. Mud Creek runs directly through the town of Hendersonville and becomes unsightly with garbage and trash discarded carelessly on its banks and in its waters.
