Community Action Team Celebrates 12-Year Anniversary of “30-Minute Beach Cleanup”
2011-06-07 · By Editor
The public is invited to join the Community Action Team and its founder Justin Rudd at the 145th consecutive monthly “30-Minute Beach Cleanup” at 10 a.m. on Sat., June 18 at 1 Granada Ave. in Belmont Shore. Following the cleanup, hot dogs will be served by Long Beach Firefighters and cake provided by the Community Action Team and other refreshments provided by Duthie Power Services. Lots of door prizes for those signed-in by 10 a.m. Free parking when volunteers enter the beachfront lot at 1 Granada Ave. after 9:30 a.m. that morning. Bags, gloves, and volunteer credit forms will also be provided.
The cleanup will also welcome about 50 more inner-city kids (some have never been to the beach) that will be bused in to join the cleanup and celebration and stay to enjoy beach activities organized by Long Beach Rotaract, as well as talks from a marine biologist and Long Beach Lifeguards. The Community Action Team brought in 50+ kids to the May cleanup and will bring in another 50+ to the July cleanup, thanks to a generous grant from the Pepsi Refresh Your Neighborhood Contest. These kids will also receive 12-year anniv. t-shirts.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome, and groups are also encouraged to attend. Reservations are not needed. Volunteers are allowed to bring their dogs off-leash within Rosie’s Dog Beach during the cleanup. Contact Justin@JustinRudd.com. Online at www.BeachCleanup.org.
