Hoover Cleanup

From Lorraine Winters at Watershed Management:

Fall traditions might look a little different this year, but you can still participate in the 2020 Hoover Litter Clean-up. This year, in light of COVID, we are inviting volunteers to a "self-guided" litter pick up. Between the dates of September 19th and October 4th, volunteers can pick their favorite area of Hoover, O'Shaughnessy or Griggs Reservoirs and collect litter from the reservoir shorelines. Bagged litter can be placed next to any of the green park trash cans and Watershed staff will dispose of it during regular trash collections. For additional information including safety tips, areas, and supplies, please contact the Columbus Watershed Management office at 614-645-1721 or email watershed@columbus.gov

For members of the BBC in order to receive credit for your Work Hours you will need to call Tony Vannelle ( 614-882-4652) and report how many bags of trash you collected and the number of hours you worked. Work credit will be given for both husband and wife up to 4 hours each.  If you need trash bags and gloves as noted above contact Watershed Management. This is a community service event that the BBC has always participated heavily to keep Hoover beautiful.



The Buckeye Boat Club is a private club located on the east side of Hoover Reservoir. The Club was founded in 1954 to promote and facilitate the sport of boating, with safety, in harmony with other aquatic interests, and to promote and facilitate social and recreational activities for members of the Club, their families, and their guests.

The Club has a clubhouse with full kitchen that is used all four seasons. We have 101 dock slips for the use of our members owning a pontoon boat. We provide boat launching, storage, and removal for our members. We are governed by a Constitution and a set of By-Laws that are voted on by the membership of the Club. To guide and enforce these two documents we elect a group of responsible members, known as the Board of Directors.

Each membership is required to participate in a minimum of ten (10) hours of work service per year to help maintain the Club and grounds. Our club members have a variety of talents that help in this area and a sign-up list is used to help direct them.

We have a Social Committee that plan and organize social events throughout the year. The Social Committee plans events such as a 4th of July picnic and boat parade, a fish fry, a pig roast, game nights, holiday parties, boat cluster parties, and many more.

Come enjoy the Club as much as you can. It's a great place to enjoy the outdoors!
