Glouster Park Trash Sweep was a Success
By Kaabe Shaw, Coordinator of Sunday Creek Watershed Restoration Project

The Sunday Creek Watershed Group (SCWG) would like to thank the volunteers that assisted with a trash sweep at Glouster Memorial Park on Saturday January 20th. About 20 volunteers worked from 11-2 to pick up trash in the park, along state route 13 and in the Villages of Trimble and Glouster. In all, the group picked up 40 large bags of trash and 5 tires that were hauled away by the Village of Glouster. The sheer amount of trash was shocking because there are plenty of trashcans available throughout the areas that were cleaned.

Once the trash is thrown onto the ground someone else has to pick it up, or it washes into the streams further polluting our watershed. Sunday Creek’s Coordinator, Kaabe Shaw, spoke about the trash issue in the watershed, “If we could convince people to throw away or recycle their Dairy Queen cups and pop bottles the area would definitely benefit. It is an awareness issue that we are trying to work on as a Watershed Group.” By hosting these Trash Sweeps the SCWG hopes to illustrate the need for litter and illegal dumping education in the Sunday Creek Watershed.

Please join us at our next Trash Sweep on Saturday February 17th to help clean up the Trimble Wildlife Area. We will meet at 11:00, at the Sunday Creek office located at 69 High Street in Glouster, Ohio.

Service Project Supports Walk for the Homeless
By Tori Patterson, AmeriCorps*VISTA for Development

Rural Action VISTA volunteers and staff members joined the local community in supporting Good Works, Inc. at its fifth Walk for the Homeless on Saturday, January 13th. Despite rainy conditions, many community members turned out to lend their support, take to the streets, and raise funds for the Timothy House shelter in Athens.

This year Rural Action VISTA volunteers coordinated a new portion of the event, the Mystery Walk, as their Martin Luther King Jr. Day service project. Over 100 people participated in the Mystery Walk, an interactive, 2.2 mile journey that led walkers down “the road to homelessness.” The participants weaved their way across Athens, stopping at different dramatized scenes to learn how it might feel to lose their jobs, their financial security, their housing, their support system of family and friends, and with no alternative, to turn to the Timothy House for help.

Rural Action VISTA volunteers and staff members served as the actors at each of the five stops on the walk. As the scenarios played out, the crowd of walkers actively participated in the drama, making it a meaningful street theater experience for all. Rural Action VISTA volunteers also narrated the walk, served hot chocolate to the walkers and facilitated a debriefing session for the group.
