Lakehill volunteers receive their award.
For more than 20 years, volunteer groups have gathered monthly to pick up trash at White Rock Lake. The Adopt-A-Shoreline program is a Dallas Park and Recreation Department initiative administered by For the Love of the Lake. Fifty local organizations have pledged their commitment by signing on as Adopt-a-Shoreline groups, agreeing to maintain a portion of White Rock Lake and its grounds and keep it litter-free.
On November 12, Lakehill was recognized as the 2016 Adopt-a-Shoreline Group of the Year at the annual appreciation picnic. Lakehill has been active in the program since 2009, and celebrated its 100th Shoreline Spruce-Up om Saturday prior to the awards ceremony. Nearly 40 Lakehill volunteers participated in the historic event.
"I am so grateful for the countless students, teachers, and families who have so enthusiastically dedicated themselves to this effort over the past eight years," said Gigi Ekstrom, Director of Marketing and Community Relations. "This award is a tribute to our amazing volunteers who are united in a common cause - to make our lake a better, cleaner place."
