Call For Volunteers

15th Annual Mississippi Earthtones Festival River Clean-up

News Release

 

ALTON, IL -- The Sierra Club Illinois’ Three Rivers Project and the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center (NGRREC) are calling for volunteers to support the 15th annual Mississippi Earthtones Festival River Clean-up. The river clean-up, which will be held from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday, September 25, is part of the Three Rivers Project and the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center’s ongoing conservation work. Volunteers and staff will work together to rid the islands and shorelines of the beautiful Mississippi River of trash and debris. Interested community members should sign up to volunteer at the clean-up by September 23.


“To date, the Mississippi Earthtones Festival River Clean up has netted over 36 tons of trash and has recycled 8 tons of recyclable materials”, said Christine Favilla, Three Rivers Project Co-Coordinator. “As we look forward to another successful year of conservation work, we ask that each volunteer determine their comfort level when participating in in-person activities with the public at this time. Masks will be mandatory during the boat ride and during check-in, and we will maintain social distancing as much as possible. Volunteers’ safety is paramount and we appreciate the community’s cooperation.”


This important conservation work is made possible by our partners, including the Beasley Fish Brothers, the Audubon Center at Riverlands, National Public Lands Day, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center.


“The National Great Rivers Research and Education Center (NGRREC) is proud to partner with Sierra Club Illinois to contribute to educating the public about the health of our great rivers,” says Sarah Fisher, Director of Environmental Education at NGRREC. “The river clean-up scheduled in honor of National Public Lands Day is a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together and give back to the rivers that sustain us. Through community volunteerism and education, we can help facilitate meaningful impacts on our public lands and waterways.”


Volunteers will receive a free boat ride, lunch, and t-shirt! Interested community members can learn more about the river clean-up and register to participate at sc.org/MEF_RiverCleanUp21.

Benefit for Amy and Aaron Adams

Grafton Oyster Bar.......

 

Grafton Oyster Bar
As the owner of Grafton Oyster Bar I type this post with a very heavy heart as our Oyster Bar family is hurting and praying for very special people in our lives.
Amy Adams, a former employee of ours and the wife of Aaron Adams is in the fight of her life. Aaron is a bartender/manager for us and has been with us since the day we opened the doors in Grafton. Amy and Aaron have 3 children with youngest being 2 years of age.
Amy was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast cancer in April of 2020. With her faith and hundreds of prayers behind her she beat this ugly disease and was in full remission.
On June 10th of this year while at work she experienced a severe seizure. After multiple tests she learned she now has 13 lesions on her brain and her cancer has been diagnosed as terminal.
Although her prognosis is terminal, Amy and her family are fighting and are determined to once again beat this cancer. Amy is currently undergoing full brain radiation. Our family knows she has so much more life to live and we know she can do this!
We are having a benefit for Amy and Aaron September 30th, 2021 at Grafton Oyster Bar and Grafton Harbor Marina from 1pm til 11pm. The Oyster Bar will be open for regular business all day with all profit being donated to the fundraiser. Our kitchen will close at 3pm. We will then be offering a BBQ pork steak & Fried chicken dinner to anyone who wants to eat to support the cause. Again all profits will be donated. In addition there will be 50/50, 70inch Visio TV raffle and a live aution.
We will have live music all afternoon to include Ledsled and Outlaw Opry whom have graciously donated their time.
As a business owner I receive 25-30 requests a week for donations to support all kinds of causes and we do our absolute best to support everything we can. We never ask for anything in return. BUT, I am cashing that in right now for this beautiful family.
If you own a business and can donate a gift card to this cause it will be so much appreciated. If you no not and have something else to donate for the auction such as Sports tickets, etc. that would be much appreciated as well. There is a go fund me page for Amy Adams as well if you cannot attend or would like to make a cash donation.
All donations can be mailed or dropped of at Grafton Oyster Bar, 215 West Water Street, Grafton, IL 62037.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support. We hope to see you September 30th!

Brad Hagen

The event is hosted by the U. S.
