The Carrollton Main Street Program wishes to thank the volunteers and its sponsors for making the 2009 Carroll County River Sweep a success. The event drew more than 200 people to cleanup the banks of the Ohio River.

Main Street wants to thank lead corporate sponsor North American Stainless for its financial support of the project. Appreciation also goes to Dow Corning, which provides funding for the free picnic lunch served at River Sweep, and to the Community Advisory Panel of  Arkema and Dow Corning for the gifts donated to reward volunteers taking part in the cleanup.

We also say thank you to Carroll County Fiscal Court and the county solid waste department that made the event possible by providing staff and equipment to load the garbage collected and hauled away.
