Photo detail

Shown is one small portion of the trash retrieved from Lake George — at one location — by volunteers during the 2011 'Keep the Queen Green Day.' Local citizens removed trash, household items, fast-food litter, anchors, a boat ladder — even two car batteries — from Lake George during the day's cleanup effort. This year's event is set for Saturday Aug. 3, and all are invited to pitch in to keep the lake scenic as well as minimize pollution that compromises the quality of water that so many area residents drink.
