Taylorsville Lake annual
As the summer season draws to a close, it is time to clean up the leftovers of a long party. The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Committee is sponsoring the event to be held Saturday, Sept. 25, beginning at 8 a.m.
This year is a dual effort in that as groups tidy up the lake area, other groups are invited to participate in a riverbank walk, cleaning the bank of Salt River from the Claude Owens canoe ramp downstream to Simpson Creek.
Lake groups will meet at the Tourist Center at 8 a.m., and Riverbank Walk groups will gather at 8 a.m. at the Canoe Ramp on West River Road about one mile from Bloomfield Road.
When finished, food, drink, and fun will be offered at the Tourist Center.
National drug take back day
Spencer County, in cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will participate in the national drug take back day Saturday, Sept. 25, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the sheriff’s office, located on the corner of Main and Main Cross streets in Taylorsville.
All unwanted drugs, prescription or over-the-county, are acceptable, including liquid and solid forms. Please remove any names from the containers for your protection before discarding.
This program is anonymous. No questions will be asked. No identification will be required.
