Members of Clyde C-Span
Submitted by:  Robert Stopper, Lyons, NY

On Saturday, April 28, several members of Clyde SPAN (connecting people with possibilities) participated in the statewide “Canal Clean Sweep” program. Thanks to C-SPAN, the trails in Clyde, NY are a bit cleaner, brighter, and less cluttered with litter than they were a week ago.

C-SPAN members worked in two crews. One crew walked the old West Shore railroad trail from Brown”s Crossing in Lock Pit to Lauraville Landing Park. Another crew walked from Reed Road to Lauraville Landing Park. Many huge bags of garbage and refuse were accumulated. “Picked up items” included bike rims and tires, chair parts, canvas covers, many bottles and cans, pieces of various colored glass, fast food containers, door mats, carpets, and even railroad spikes and bolts.

Trail "Litter" picked up along the way
C-SPAN, promoting beautification efforts and the community working together, is an organization with over 50 dues paying members. Members participating in this year’s “clean sweep” operation include the following: Rose Jeanne Strakal, David Hickey, Dan Ketchum, Joel Miner, Ron Loder, John Robert, Tom Castellano, Hugh Miner, David Albrecht, and Jerry Fremouw.  

The “Clean Sweep” was organized by master organizer, David Hickey. David, a charter member of ERIE (Erie’s Restoration Interests Everyone) has been “clean sweeping” the Erie canal each year for over 25 years!

    Thanks for keeping the east end of the Erie clean in Wayne County. Hopefully we can connect the trail with Lyons soon so we can see all the wonderful history along the Old Erie Canal.
