Take Pride in SML




2017 Take Pride in Smith Mountain Lake Cleanup Event


The 30th Take Pride in Smith Mountain Lake Cleanup Event concluded on September 4, 2017 with another successful year.

The mission of Take Pride in Smith Mountain Lake is “to provide an opportunity for all who use Smith Mountain Lake to work cooperatively to keep the Lake clean” and to “encourage awareness that keeping the Lake clean requires continuous effort by all who use the lake.” 

Many individuals, families, neighbors, subdivisions, and organizations made that mission a reality  by hosting 2017 cleanup events throughout the lake area.  There were 10 events hosted during the event period, with approximately 6.43 tons of debris collected.
