Beach cleanup Thursday 6/11 at 6 pm

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!

It’s beach cleanup time!

It’s 53 degrees, but bright and sunny out. Supposedly it is June, which means it is BEACH CLEANUP time:)

We have two trash cleanups planned for June and July. Hope you can make it to both!

Notice the time difference. We will start a little earlier on July 23rd so that we have time to get to Horny Goat afterwards and hang out for a bit.

Trash bags, gloves, and food will be provided at the cleanups. Bring yourself, your neighbors, your friends, your family. We can use all the help we can get.

See you there!

Garlic Mustard Brigade May 18th

Hello all,

We had a great FOSSP meeting last night. Lots of new neighbors came to discuss how our friends group can better support South Shore Park.

Our next event is coming up soon. Come out on Monday, May 18th at 5 pm to pull garlic mustard. It’s that time of year – we need to get it out before it goes to seed. More hands make light work – come out for an hour if you can. Gather at the bluff south of the South Shore Pavilion.

Our June meeting will be a beach cleanup held on Thursday, June 11th at 6 pm. Hope to see you there as well!

May 14 Potluck

Hello Friends of South Shore Park (FOSSP),

Just a reminder that we are hosting a potluck on Thursday, May 14th (that’s tomorrow) at 6 pm at the South Shore Pavilion. Please bring a dish to share. Beverages will be provided. We are looking for members to help out with several activities: beach cleanups, native plant restoration, Earth Day, park safety, our board, and more.

Do you like updating or designing websites? We could use your help with www.southshoreparkwatch.org. We still need to change the website name to reflect our name change.

Do you like organizing community events? We could use your help with most activities we put on:)

Do you like to write? We could use your help sending out announcements and writing articles for the Bay View Compass.

Still wondering why we changed our name? Check out this recent article on our name change by Cary Solberg:

Thanks for everyone’s continued involvement and dedication to South Shore Park,
Jane
