This year's annual Lake Robinson Day of Celebration will be on Sunday, October 13, 2013, from 1 pm to 6 pm. The day will be filled with family activities, good food and good guitar music by Jacob Johnson, a SC native (www.jacobjohnsontunes.com).

Lake cleanup 2013
- Category: Events

We have scheduled Lake Cleanup Day for Saturday, September 21 at 9:00 a.m. to coincide with a worldwide effort, organized by the Ocean Conservancy, to clean up our lakes and oceans. This will be the seventh year that we have sponsored this event. We are meeting at J. Verne Smith Park located off Mays Bridge Road on Lake Robinson. If you have lakeshore property, please take a few minutes and clean up your shoreline. If you want to go the extra mile, you can encourage your neighbors to participate in a neighborhood cleanup as well.
The cleanup is a part of an international event sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy . The Ocean Conservancy encourages volunteer groups to clean up coastlines of lakes, rivers and oceans throughout the world during September. This is an opportunity to demonstrate your concern for maintaining the quality of water in Lake Robinson, and to do something about it. Interested volunteers should bring gloves and other tools to help in the clean up effort. Garbage bags will be provided.
Friends of Lake Robinson has submitted an application to the Adopt-A-Highway Program in SC. The plan is to adopt Mays Bridge Road that runs in front of the J. Verne Smith Park entrance and continues to Highway 101.

This guide can help you be sure that your septic system is used and maintained properly.
