Here's a copy of the press release that will be in this Thursday's San Pedro Sun - but for anyone that may possibly be here I wanted to give you an advance - we can use all the help we can get. We are trying to make this educational as well - 'instead of cleaning up - let's keep it clean.'

WIN – WIN on North End
Clean Road – Cash Prizes

This Saturday, December 17th, the North Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch Association (NACNW) is sponsoring a special event. All the children of the San Mateo Subdivision are invited to participate in a friendly competition and win cash.

Starting at 9:00 AM everyone is to meet on the beach in front of Coco Locos Bar where a staging area will be designated. Teams will be formed to do a road and beach clean up from the north end of the pull ferry to the Palapa Bar.

Each child will be given latex gloves to protect their hands from the dirty litter they will be collecting. Each team will be given marked trash bags and instructions for collecting. Supervising adults will have cardboard boxes where sharp items can be safely stored.

At 11:00 everyone is to meet again at the beach and winners will be determined, hot dogs and cold drinks served cash prizes awarded and pictures taken for the newspaper.
The plan is to have the trip north to the Jazz Festival as pretty as possible.

“We need all the help we can get,” said Harriette Fisher who is organizing this with the help of Pat Stiley and other NACNW members. “We want the kids who live here to take pride in their community and we need parents to help supervise. Those with golf carts will collect and haul the full bags.”

For more information or to volunteer call 226-3687.

Since it so close to Christmas and we are working on short notice I decided there is nothing like cash. All contributions are welcome. Checks should be made out to NACNW – so you will know your money is accounted for.

ScubaLdy, I think this is wonderful. I so hope it works out well. It is a win-win situation for all. I sure do wish I was there to join in, but won't be there till February. Thank you for organizing this and making it come true. Have a wonderful holiday, and see you in Feb.

What a great thing for the island! The kids will be so proud of themselves and the adults should be proud of the good example they are setting. If I were there I'd be packn' trash with the rest of you. Great service. It will make a huge difference to get rid of some of that junk.
