6/7/14 cleanup of three War of 1812 Historic Shrines in celebration of their 200th Anniversary!
Thank Clean Bread and Cheese Creek Volunteers for another incredible job! On 6/7/14, 36 volunteers cleaned up 34 bags of trash, removed poison ivy vines, weeds and brush from three of Dundalk's War of 1812 monuments! We also trimmed back foliage allowing the Methodist Meeting House Monument to be visible from North Point Road. We would also like to thank Poor Boys Garden Center for donating five bags of much which we spread around the base of the Methodist Meeting House Monument, placed in the flower box built into the North Point Battlefield State park sign and used in the garden corner of the Battle Acre Park Monument.

We would like to send a special thank you to the volunteers who assisted form the U. S. Navy, Team Todd Crandall and Team Bob Long and of course our incredible and intrepid clean Bread and Cheese Creek Volunteers! Thank you everyone for all your hard work as we preserve these important historic structures and shoe the proper respect to those who gave their lives defending our country at the Battle of North Point! And we seem to have finished just in the nick of time too because as we were packing up a tour bus came with people arriving to visit all three monument!


We run our cleanups as a family event with plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We welcome every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the cleanup. Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we need people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed. People will be needed to help at registration, setup food and snacks as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Community Service and Service Learning Hours for students. The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. We will provide lunch and snacks as well as gloves. A limited number of tools are available for sign-out, but suggest bringing your own if you have them
