Once again, we had a successful luncheon at Spaghetti Warehouse. We would like to thank Janet Boscarino from Clean Memphis Inc. for being our guest speaker. She spoke on how Memphis Propeller Club (MPC) and Clean Memphis (CM) plan to work together to clean up McKeller Lake. She explained how in the 1950's Memphis was a five-time winner of the "Nation's Cleanest City" award, but Memphis now holds the title for one of the dirtiest cities. Memphis's population growth has declined and this is mainly due to crime and grime as CM says. CM has partnered with local businesses and universities to help work towards making Memphis one of the cleanest cities again. By making Memphis a cleaner city, crime will decline instead of population growth and this will promote a sense of pride in our community, not just our Tigers. We hope to get as many MPC members as we can to help with this clean up. CM knows of groups such as fraternities and sororities that need volunteer hours to help as well. If you know of any organizations that would be willing to help, please contact someone on our Clean-Up Committee.

Also, we heard about the McKeller Lake “trash” from Stan Johnson. Stan shared with us some pictures he had taken several months ago of the trash all along side of the river. It is amazing at what is up and down the river... basketballs, bottles, refrigerators, toys, and tons and tons of cans. Larry and Rita Stanley, owners of Riverside Park Marina, will be co-chairs of the clean up committee. Other members of the committee are Stan Johnson, Tony Johnston, and Rick Prince. If you would like to help, please contact one of the board members.
