KEEDYSVILLE - The rainy weather probably kept a few would-be volunteers from showing up at Taylors Landing on Saturday morning for the 10th annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup event, said Donna Swauger, park ranger for the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park in Williamsport.
But it didn't hamper a die-hard team of three volunteers and three park workers in making a noticeable dent in sorting out trash from the natural debris deposited on the Potomac River bank.
"It's amazing how much a few folks can do. But there's always more trash," said Swauger, who planned to move her human vacuum as far downstream as possible during the three-hour undertaking.
Taylors Landing was one of several spots in the Washington County leg of the national park included in the annual regional cleanup effort, she said.
