Longview Volunteers Fish For Trash

A different kind of fishing today in Longview, as volunteers were trying to bag garbage. Around 75 volunteers gathered at Rotary Park this morning for the first ever "Fishing for Trash" day. The effort was organized by members of the "Keep Longview Beautiful" group, to clean trash from the Guthrie Creek area. Two cub scout groups and Letourneau University students as well as area homeowners pitched in to clear the creek of trash.

For those involved, it was a chance to pass on an important message of keeping the environment clean. Another waterway cleaning effort planned for the future.
