The Seanachai: Greetings from Geocaching.com,

As part of my duties, I am archiving this cache as it has been over 30 days since the event occurred. From the Geocaching.com listing guidelines regarding event caches:

"After the event has passed, the event cache should be archived by the organizer within four weeks."

Thank you for taking the time to create and host this event, but it is time for the listing to be archived.

Geocache Description:

May 1st, 2010 12:30 PM

Mill Creek Greenway


We were lucky enough to have our event chosen for official sponsorship by Magellan. The means we will have some great items to give away including a new Magellan Explorist GC. So come on out and join us for a great cause and the opportunity to win an awesome prize.

It has been a year since the floods that devastated much of Middle Tennessee, when torrential rains lifted the Cumberland River 13 feet above flood stage, causing an estimated $1 billion in damage, and killing more than 30 people. Our community has made great strides in the recovery, many people have moved back into their homes and downtown has reopened. We are rebuilding, but the work continues.

A year ago, we were joined together celebrating the Geocaching's 10th Birthday, when the rains began that kept us confined to a picnic shelter. Twelve hours later that same shelter was under ten feet of water and as we helped each other make it home as streets and interstates began to close, we knew that this was going to have long ranging effects on our community. The rains continued for another day and a half and we saw our city being torn apart, but our community coming together.

That is why we will gather at 12:30 AM on May 1st, 2011, one year after the floods, to continue the work. While recovery has gone well in many places there is still much to be done. When the Cumberland crested it's banks this is one of the natural areas hardest hit. While many businesses remain closed in the area and people have rebuilt their homes, this section of the Mill Creek Greenway still has significant flood damage. So come out and join us as we help give back to the community and support Metroparks in their continuing clean up efforts.

We will bring coolers full of water and trash bags, you bring a desire to help and any gear you think you might need to help out (gloves, work clothes etc.) and together we will remember this anniversary by sharing the undaunted spirit of our great community of geocachers.
