A crew from Veeder-Root Co. (Duncansville) collected over 500lbs of trash from the middle J on August 28th. Veeder-Root has been conducting clean-ups on the J in the fall for several years. The LJRA supplies gloves and bags and pays for disposal. Joel Bobetich, Ron Chappell, Brad Rettburg, Brent Hopkins, Mark Watters, and James Lemin (absent from this photo) participated. Great job guys!
