We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, and we respect and honor with gratitude the land itself, the legacy of the ancestors, and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

“Team Up to Clean Up” in Caroline County, April 20

Thanks to the 7 people who picked up trash on Aug. 20 in support of Earth Day and to improve the beauty of Caroline County. We collected 9 orange bags.

Our territory was the trailer court at the edge of the nature perserve. The front was littered with plastic and paper in all stages of deterioration. We ventured in to the woods with thick brush that hindered our way. All sorts of things were found including a plastic bucket.

Thanks to the Solid Waste Department of Caroline County for sponsoring this trash pickup for a second year. They supplied the bright orange bags for pickup as well as the grabbers and vests for identification.

Here is a photo gallery of the event.
