Beach Cleanup a Success

The Ocean Conservancy Beach cleanup was a success in Walton county. Our chapter managed the cleanup for the TDC, at 6 sites. We had 120 people turn out, and collect over 600 pounds of trash !!!!!!
I had the pleasure of giving away a gift card for van shoes to a 13 year old kid named Jimmy, who walked to the cleanup and did his part. That, thanks to the generosity of Don and Peggy Mall of Bra Ha surf shop, who sponsored the shoe giveaway. They also hosted two of our sites!
Atlanta Chapter camped at Grayton Beach state park, and became part of our cleanup effort there. Welcome surfrider Atlanta!
