LONG BEACH, Wash. - The April Community Beach cleanup has been changed from Saturday to Sunday.
Cleanup starts at 9:30 a.m. and runs through noon. To participate, people may visit beach approaches, including Seaview, Bolstad Avenue, Cranberry Road, Ocean Park and Oysterville Road, where they will be signed up and put to work. Those attending should wear gloves.
The cleanup is organized by the Grass Roots Garbage Gang, a group organized in 2001, said member Shelly Pollock.
A potluck dinner Friday at the Peninsula Senior Center precedes the cleanup. Adopt-a-beach groups and beach approach coordinators can pick up their supplies starting at 5 p.m. Dinner will begin at 5:30 and Alan Rammer, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife flotsam expert, will talk at 6 p.m.
A thank-you lunch will be served to volunteers at the Senior Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday after the cleanup. The event is supported by Jack's Country Store, Okie's Sentry Supermarket and the Berry Patch Restaurant.
