Last year the 75 volunteers collected two tons of trash during Sardis’ Clean-Up Day. Brian Johnson, supervisory natural resource specialist at Sardis Lake, stated, “We look forward to seeing area students from schools and universities participate as in years past, and hopefully the number of participants will double from last year. Mugshots of Oxford are willing participants who are always eager to assist with the beautification of Sardis Lake.”
