Due to predicted colder weather and precipitation, Illinois River Sweep coordinator Ron Dunbar said the Cassie Dunbar eighth annual River Sweep will not be Saturday, but a week from Saturday.

The sweep will begin with sign-ups at 7 a.m. April 19 at Cutright Park. Sign-ups will continue until 10 a.m. with the clean-up in progress. Volunteers and boaters will help clean up the banks of the Illinois River. Garbage sacks and gloves are provided. Door prizes will be available for those who participate, along with a hot dog cook-out at the park after the sweep.
