ALBANY - The Lake Winnetka/Sugar River Improvement Association had 70 people come to help clean up the Sugar River during the association's annual Sugar River Cleanup May 18. This year's event marked the 19th year that the group has organized the river cleanup, which is registered as part of The American Rivers National River Cleanup and is held each year on the Saturday before Memorial Day weekend. Volunteers began working the Little Sugar at Schneeberger Road and the Big Sugar from the County X bridge north of Attica Road.
