On Saturday, October 10, a few members of our Waterfront Property Law Team helped our nonprofit community partner, Lynnhaven River Now, clean up Lake Windsor, located at Mount Trashmore in Virginia Beach. We also worked with LRN this time last year to clean Lake Windsor. The refuse removed by our four attorneys filled four large industrial-size trash bags. Together these four large bags occupied all of the available space in the Chevrolet Tahoe used to transport us to our cleanup site at the lake. The total weight of trash removed by the Pender & Coward team was 100 pounds, consisting of food containers, glass/plastic/aluminum beverage bottles and cans, plastic bags, styrofoam packing material, 100’s of plastic tips from cigars, and even a plastic outdoor chair. LRN’s Assistant Director, Helen Kuhns, said “Lynnhaven River Now appreciates Pender & Coward for the great work it does to restore the health of the Lynnhaven River”.
