Riversweep, the annual clean-up event of Lake Wylie’s 325 mile shoreline, will be held
on Saturday, October 7th, from 8 AM to 12 PM.

Volunteers can pre-register on-line now at http://www.lakewylieriversweep.com to
help at one of the 15 Riversweep site locations around Lake Wylie

Walk-up volunteers can register at the site they select the morning of the event.
Boat owners are needed to serve as Boat Captains to shuttle volunteers who
retrieve the trash and debris from the shoreline; pontoon boats are particularly
useful. Other volunteers help at the sites to offload the debris as it comes in.

Wear comfortable, old clothing, closed-toe shoes that can get wet and muddy, a
hat or sun visor and sunscreen

Riversweep Site Captains will distribute bottled water, work gloves, and trash
bags to their volunteers.

If you have questions about the pre-registration process, please e-mail the
Registrar at riversweep@catawbariverkeeper.org

A New Beginning

It has been a while, with job losses, relocation,  and children moving away, our crew has been slightly distracted for a number of months, and now, what appears to be years.

We hope to get back into the swing of community commentary and punditry.

Your input and feedback is vital. And, once again – we are just a few folks who like our community, like where we live, and love our families. Just like you. We may disagree, we may state that disagreement, but we will neither get emotional or upset about any of it.

Lessee, there is a lot to look at, where do we begin…..

South Point is again doing well in Football, a new Harris Teeter is opening soon. Seven sites remain to be developed in Belmont Reserve, and it appears that Brookline Homes have six more sites in Eagle Park.

Speaking of Brookline, who opened offices on East Catawba. They will be doing a chunk of the development along the river where an old mill once stood. Municipal elections coming up soon (Nov. 7th) and new hurdles for bridge(s) over the Catawba (like the idea or or not).

RE: Belmont’s Busy Weekend

Well, a big weekend has come and gone in dear old Belmont.

Some of the more progressive realtors in town were able to piggyback on the weekend that drew thousands of visitors to Friday Night Live!, the Garibaldi Festival, and the Belmont Women’s Club Home Tour. There were multiple “open houses” for homes that were for sale in the Belmont area. Realtors certainly took advantage to show their listings this weekend and particularly on Sunday.

Some homes for sale within the tour pattern were visited by a number of individuals, and a few received offers this week according to our sources.

Now this is the way to market Belmont, events, social life, school activities, and FUN!

congratulations to all the people who continue to show the best of what Belmont has to offer. This summer should be very interesting with all the upcoming events that are planned.
