PATOKA LAKE — The 14th annual Patoka Lake Clean Up Day drew 107 volunteers who picked up 1,035 pounds of trash from the property while maintaining social distancing. They collected trash from the roadways, shoreline and forested areas, as well as from the water itself, with the help of those with kayaks and boats.

Volunteer groups included two scout troops, the Northeast Dubois High School FFA, local business leaders and families and individuals. The oldest volunteer was 79. Goodie bags were made available to participants of the event at each ramp location.
