March 17

Volunteers will gather at the 15th Avenue boat ramp at 8 AM and are back to the boat ramp by about 10 AM for a group photo with all your finds, for our local papers.

It’s enjoyable to get out on the water early and to visit some islands and areas that people rarely see. Plus we always find interesting things. Join in even if you don’t have a boat (or don’t want to use yours). Bring gloves and shoes or sneakers that can get wet. A hat is advisable too.

We will provide the trash bags, water, and some grabbers. If you are not arriving by boat, come by car or bike to the boat ramp. After the clean-up, expect to have some eats supplied by IRB.

John Pfanstiehl is organizing the clean-up. Please RSVP by calling John at 727-642-4715.

Last minute show-ups are welcomed too. We could use a couple of more boats that are willing to get dirty too. (Bill Thomas and John Pfanstiehl have already volunteered their boats.)
