A reminder about the next event and thanks to all the volunteers who signed up for it.

'Rivers Alive' Returns in October 'Rivers Alive' Returns in October 'Rivers Alive' Returns in October


The Tucker Civic Association, in conjunction with RIVERS ALIVE, sincerely thanks you for stepping up to volunteer for the first time, or as a returning volunteer in the Fifth Annual Rivers Alive Clean Up. Your past participation has been a valuable part of our success.

If you haven’t yet committed, we really need to know “Yes” or “No” as soon as possible, so email us with details such as your name or the name of your group and # expected by Monday, Aug. 27.

By Monday, Sep. 10 we’d like to know final details: the name of your group, number of volunteers, their ages, and a lead contact person with their information.    

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 4315 Cowan Road, Tucker, GA (two buildings to the right of the ) from 9 a.m. – 12 noon. *Heavy rain date is Saturday, October 20 at the same time.

This year we have a very special surprise!  For the art enthusiast, we will be repurposing wood dumped near the creek. We’ll have an area set aside for building and painting crafty message boards saying things like KEEP OUR CREEKS CLEAN!, etc.   We’ll be hanging these signs along the trail later in the month.  Email us if you’re interested in helping to create and later hang these signs. 

Expect another detailed note in mid-September outlining How to Get There, Where to Park, What to Wear, What to Bring, other details as they emerge, along with a waiver to sign.  NOTE:  All participants must be 10 years old or older.  If you have a child younger than 10 years of age that you would like to bring, please contact us to see if we have a task for them - away from the clean-up area. 

We’ve again attached the RIVERS ALIVE flyer which we hope you’ll share with others that may have an interest in participating.  PLEASE – LET US KNOW IF YOU’RE COMING!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at volunteertca@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support of our waterways and your Tucker Community.
