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.
