Hit the beach
It’s the beach, and we can all pitch in to clean it up.
Keep Port Aransas Beautiful needs help cleaning up Port Aransas beaches on Saturday, Sept. 26.
In a joint effort with the Texas General Land Office, KPAB is hosting the 24th 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 help out.
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.
According to Laurie Barello, Port Aransas High School and Brundrett Middle School students may use the hours volunteered to help fill public service requirements for National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society applications. Barello is the honor society sponsor at PAHS.
Hot dogs and beverages, provided by the Family Center IGA and H-E-B, along with ice provided by Quality Liquor, 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 will sponsor the Jetty Boat fare for volunteers being transported to St. Joseph Island to clean up that beach. The St. Joseph Island detail is filled to capacity, according to KPAB event organizer Deno Fabrie. Allied Waste will donate a dumpster for the trash.
