PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Rotary will host Friends of the Pemi Clean-Up Day on Saturday, August 3. Participants will gather at the Campton Beach/Mill area at 8 a.m.
The cleaning of the the Livermore Falls/Holderness beach will start at 9:30 a.m. followed by the clean-up of the Holderness Conservation Land and South Beach area in Plymouth beginning at 10:30 am. Volunteers will re-convene at noon at the Plymouth Rotary Amphitheater on Green Street in Plymouth for a wrap-up session.
The Friends of the Pemi – Livermore Chapter was launched by Plymouth Rotary and several community partners in order to protect the environment along the Pemigewasset River corridor. The scheduled clean-up day is the first in a series of efforts that will promote the vision of the Friends to turn Livermore Falls into a clean, family-friendly park. The idea is to make the surrounding towns' shoreline areas and the Pemi River into a safe and attractive destination for recreational use to be enjoyed by residents and tourists alike.
The Plymouth Rotary Club is seeking grant funding that will help defray the cost of materials for signage, gravel and grading, a guard house for an attendant, a kiosk, picnic tables and grills for the Livermore Falls area. The Rotary District 7850 just announced that the Plymouth Rotary has been awarded a $4,000 District Grant to begin the project. A grant of this type requires there be matching funds of $4,000 from the community-at-large individuals and businesses.
