Antietam Creek Watershed Alliance Inc. received a $500 donation from Capital Bank of Rockville, Md., as a contribution for the purchase of T-shirts which will be given out to workers at the alliance's fifth rubbish roundup.

The rubbish round-up will be at Dixon-Troxell Post 211 American Legion in Funkstown on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The purpose of the event is to pick up trash and help clean up part of Antietam Creek in Washington County.

Volunteers will paddle or row boats down a section of Antietam Creek from the former MELP plant to the Legion site. Other volunteers will walk along the creek. Some of the trash will be recycled while most of it will be picked up by municipal employees. A picnic lunch will follow.

About 100 volunteers from schools, Scouts, alternative sanctions program and the general public are expected to participate.

The gift from Capital Bank makes it possible to give T-shirts to volunteers for the first time.
