Litter is a global problem that is easily solved through community involvement and the participation of each individual. Robert F Kennedy said “It is not more bigness that should be our goal. We must attempt, rather, to bring people back to the warmth of community, to the worth of individual effort and responsibility, and of individuals working together as a community, to better their lives and their children’s future.”

We are blessed to have such a beautiful body of water so close. A body of water that has a tight knit community surrounding it. We at ArborPro Tree Care feel it is our duty to be good stewards of our land and community. The Lake Anna Business Partnership and Lake Anna Civic Association felt the same way.

As stewards, it is our duty to do our part in maintaining Lake Anna’s beauty and charm, but who said duty can’t be fun, right?

Lake Anna Business Partnership’s Lake Anna Clean Up Day will be held Saturday, May 15, 2021. This event will be held in a competitive nature amongst volunteers, as well as local HOA communities, to see who can pick up the most litter on the lake or within their HOA. Anyone can volunteer, and teams of two are encouraged - so invite your friends! Concluding the event, volunteers are invited to HighPoint Marina where the final weigh in will be held to record the weight of each volunteer’s bag(s) of litter. The Lake Anna Business Partnership will be awarding prizes to one person from each class/category at Lake Anna Taphouse, later that same afternoon. 

To be eligible to win a prize after final weigh in, a volunteer must first submit a registration form online before May 9th, selecting to compete in 1 of 3 classes/categories:

1. Self-propelled watercraft - (Use your kayak or paddle board from your preferred ramp, and collect as much litter as you can!)

2. Motorized watercraft - (Use your boat from your preferred ramp, and collect as much litter as you can!)

3. HOA – (Compete as a member of your HOA instead of as an individual in the above two classes mentioned. You can collect on the roads within your HOA, or launch from your HOA’s ramp and collect litter from within the lake. Your personal litter’s total weight will go towards a chance to win an individual prize. It will also count towards a cumulative total for your HOA. The HOA with the most litter collected will be awarded a plaque.)

Good natured competition is such a fun way to inspire involvement and community fellowship. There’s no question that Lake Anna is growing rapidly. It’s our duty to make a big area continue to feel like the loving, tight knit community that it truly is. We hope to see you there!
