Per tradition, the teams cleaned up the garbage around Glen Island. The men's and women's team collected many bags of garbage after participating in this year's clean up. This year however, the teams decided to make collecting the garbage a competition. Each team was given thirty minutes to collect as much garbage as they could, and then it was weighed at the end. This is a service project that the team partakes in annually to help keep its home course clean for spectators and members of the community as well as doing their part to keep the environment clean. The team enjoyed being active members in the community and as a result helped make a difference at Glen Island.
On Saturday, April 24th, 2010, the men's and women's rowing team spent time cleaning up Glen Island Park. Glen Island Park is the home outdoor practice facility for Iona College Rowing. The team has been practicing and racing there for many years and have made several memories since the organization began rowing out of the Castle at Glen Island in 1960.
