The EIPHC will celebrate Earth Day with a clean-up event. This year the Surf Riders are also doing a sound side pick up and we are hoping to coordinate with them for this event. You can choose to help with the Highway Pick Up or the Boat Based sound side pick up. Details and sign ups were available at the April PHlocking and the boats that signed up are currently full. Please contact Val Johnson at email@example.com if you have a boat, and/or can accommodate an eager crew! Ask your friends and neighbors too!
Our tentative schedule is for Saturday April 21st from 11-1:00, starting in the ICW off the EI boat ramp, heading west, with a gathering on Pelican Island afterwards!
If that Saturday doesn’t work for you, Bogue Banks Surf Rider Organization is planning a similar cleanup on Sunday April 22nd., cleaning the sound islands heading east. Let Val know if you need contact info for them.
If you prefer the land over the sea and have an hour to spare, please let Jean Jensen know that you can help with the Adopt a Highway event, the same day. Meet at the Emerald Club at 11 am for an hour or so for the litter pick up. Jean Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him at 607-759-7159.
Need to congratulate the approximately 30 hard workers, on 7 boats, who made this year’s spring Sound Sweep so productive!
44 large garbage bagfuls of miscellaneous cans, bottles, plastic and foam were collected from the ICW islands. Also several coolers, broken beach chairs and pop up canopies, boards, rugs, hats, etc. etc!
Then the “purposeful partying” continued over lunch on Pelican Island afterwards. Great work everyone!!
