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!
