Greetings!

I am the organizer for Clean Bread and Cheese Creek. Please allow me to tell you a little more about our organization, anyone who is familiar with Bread and Cheese Creek thinks of it as a polluted eyesore. A stream that breaches above ground just East of Eastern Avenue then meanders a path roughly along Old North Point Road until it empties into Back River which in turn flows into the Chesapeake Bay. We are all aware of the importance the health of the Chesapeake Bay hold to all Maryland Residents. Those who grew up in this area remember a different creek entirely, one teeming with frogs, crayfish, and minnows – a place where many a child spent long summer days happily playing. It is my goal to bring back that stream, not for me, not just for the residents that live along it, but for everyone who reaps the benefits of the Chesapeake Bay. We are a group of volunteers working with the community, Baltimore County Environmental Protection and Resource Management and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay as well as other organizations to clean up Bread And Cheese Creek.

To continue toward this goal, I have confirmed Saturday, April 10th at 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM, Rain or Shine, as the day and time we clean up the stream in the section between Plainfield Road Bridge and Old North Point Road . ANY time you can give to helping us out is more then appreciated. We are continuing with this section since it has many elderly residents along the stream in this section who are not capable doing it themselves. This is not only the right thing to do by assisting these elderly people, but makes the project eligible to utilize the resources of the Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Resources Management.

There will be plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We will need every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the Clean Up. Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we can use people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed. People will be needed to work the grills as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Service Learning Hours for students. The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. As my grandfather always said,“Many hands makes the work light”

We had a great start to getting the stream cleaned up this year and I am sure we can continue with our momentum in 2010!

If you know anyone who lives along this section of the creek who wouldn’t mind us using their yard as a base camp, please contact me. Additionally, if you know of any business who might want to sponsor this event, please contact me. I have attached a copy of a new flyer for this event as well.
