Gold Beach Beach Cleanup!

We had a great South Jetty Beach Cleanup on last Saturday the 24th. It was a little chilly, but the group managed to pick up two truck loads of garbage and recycling! Kudos to Zak, Stormy, Rob, Dave and Greg with a little late moral support from Gib and Ezra. Special thanks to SOLV for the garbage bags, the State Parks for taking one load of garbage and CTR for a 20% discount on the rest of the garbage and recycling. It’s volunteers like you that help make this world a better place, thanks again!
