Two Harbors Community Clean Up Meets with Success

Despite spring showers, the Two Har­bors Community Clean Up on May 4th was a success. 25 volunteers gathered to­gether on a rainy Saturday to help clean up Two Harbors. They gathered trash from local trails, the Burlington Bay Campground, Skunk Creek, the railroad tracks, beaches, the skate park, and the hockey arena. In total, 966.5 pounds of trash were gathered. Granite Gear, Lake County Soil and Water, the Friends of the Waterfront, and Lovin’ Lake County helped to put together the clean up, part­nering with Castle Danger Brewery.

Thank you to all the volunteers and or­ganizations who worked hard to clean up Two Harbors! Keep an eye out for next year’s community clean up, and in the meantime, take a bit of time to regular­ly help keep Two Harbors and the North Shore beautiful. “Community is about doing something together that makes be­longing matter,” author and influencer Brian Solis once said. Making your com­munity more beautiful — that does matter.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
