Community will join forces to clean up the beach on Saturday
It's our beach and it's our responsibility. Spend a few hours taking care of it on Saturday, April 25.
Keep Port Aransas Beautiful needs help cleaning up Port Aransas beaches. In a joint effort with the Texas General Land Office, KPAB is hosting the 23rd annual Adopt-A-Beach Clean-up as part of a state-wide effort.
KPAB provides the labor and the GLO provides the supplies to the volunteers. Just show up and get to work.
Port Aransas volunteers should check in on the beach at Avenue G at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, to register and be assigned an area. The clean-up will go on, rain or shine, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Individuals, families, organizations and youth groups are invited to participate.
Hot dogs and beverages, provided by the Family Center IGA and H-E-B, and cookies donated by the Omni Hotel in Corpus Christi, will be served to all volunteers from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Fred Rhodes Memorial Pavilion at Roberts Point Park.
The Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the Jetty Boat fare for volunteers being transported to St. Joseph Island to clean up that beach. Allied Waste will donate a dumpster for the trash. The St. Joseph Island detail is filled to capacity, according to KPAB event organizer Deno Fabrie.
