Thank you again to the fabulous volunteers at June’s beach cleanup. We received some unexpected assistance from a local boy scout troop and the Oceans of Fun Milwaukee County Zoo employees. Check out some pictures here: https://www.oceansoffun.org/news_detail/36
Okay let’s try this again, weather permitting. We will clean up South Shore Beach on Thursday, June 18th (that’s this week!) at 6 pm. Pizza will be served at 7 pm on the beach.
See you there!
We are canceling the cleanup tonight due to inclement weather. Thunderstorms are still possible tonight. We will meet next Thursday, June 18th at 6 pm instead. Hope you can make it next week!
Realized I had the wrong date in the subject line. Our first cleanup is Thursday, June 11th at 6 pm!
Looking forward to see you on Thursday! We need all the help we can get. First cleanup of the season could get hairy. Dirty diapers, used needles, and other sordid trash needs picked up, as well as the usual candy wrappers and cigarette butts. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Thanks for your help in advance!
