Clean Sweep sees another successful year

To the Editor:

The 13th annual POWW Clean Sweep of The Great Miami River was very successful.

Early tallies are 151 tires, and I estimate way over 6 tons of trash.

A big “thank you” to Cargill, our main sponsor. We appreciate our major sponsors: Atlantis Sportswear, Miami Conservancy District, Cox Media Group, American Rivers, Butler County Storm Water District, city of Sidney, Heidelberg Distributing, Bonbright Distributors, Sweetwater Brewing and POWW (Protecting Our Water Ways).

A very special thanks to Miami Valley Steel, American Honda Motors Troy, Crayex, Down the River/Down a Beer, and Rich Donnelly Foundation. None of this is possible without the sweat equity of our great POWW volunteers and our local eateries for their lunches.

Thank you to all!
