This years Beach Sweep/River Sweep which was hosted on Saturday, September 21st at Children’s Park, had their best turnout ever! Roughly 50-60 volunteers showed up for the international fight for trash free seas.
The group rented a dumpster which by the end of the sweep was 3/4 way full of trash. Additionally, organizers had to take a pickup truck that was FULL of larger items, construction debris, and tires to the dump as it would not fit into the dumpster.
Thank you to Andrea Kelly and her crew of volunteers who helped make this event a huge success! Your work is noticed and greatly appreciated by all of us and by the sea.
