Cleaning up Grand Lake … With a little help from the Grand River Dam Authority’s buoy barge, volunteers removed this mountain of shoreline trash for the waters of Grand Lake during last Saturday’s (Sept. 20), Grand Lake Shoreline Cleanup. GRDA, along with the Grand Lake Sail and Power Squadron, Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and the Monkey Island Association joined forces to make the event possible, and provided dumpsters at various locations around the lake. GRDA also provided its barge to aid the effort. A big  “Thank You” goes out from event organizers to everyone who spent part of a beautiful Saturday afternoon cleaning up the shoreline. The cleanup helps rid the shoreline of old dock foam and other debris, thus making it a safer, and more scenic, destination for all lake visitors, including those with fins and feathers.
