The Bardstown Boaters would like to thank everyone who participated in the seventh annual Paddle Pickup. Perfect weather and river conditions provided volunteers the ability to focus on nothing but enjoying a full day of picking up trash as they floated down the river. Volunteers canoed and kayaked while removing all sorts of trash including tires, bicycles, refrigerators, a 1937 license plate, and even a bowling ball from six miles of the Beech Fork River between Fredericktown and Manton.
Special thanks to Judge Executive Dean Watts for his efforts and his ongoing support of the event. Also, a huge thanks to Boy Scout Troops 142 and 147 for again providing the number of volunteers needed to make the cleanup such a success.
