Temple Shalom Organizing COA Beach Sweep in May

Temple Shalom in Aberdeen will be hosting a Clean Ocean Action (COA) Beach Sweep on Sunday 22 May 2011. Participants will meet at Temple Shalom at 9:30 am for a breakfast  presentation by COA's Pollution Prevention Coordinator Tavia Danch on keeping the health of the shore. At 10:30 am, the group will caravan over to Cliffwood Beach, the target of the day's shore cleanup activities. Volunteers are encouraged to submit an interest form so organizers can get an idea of how many people to expect.  If you go directly to the cleanup event, seek out a beach captain for your assignment.
