On Earth Day, Saturday April 20, 2019, there will be an island-wide beach clean-up.

 

The event is sponsored by the Vineyard Conservation Society (VCS), but our club has traditionally been responsible for clean-up of Norton Point and South Beach. In recent years, only a few dedicated members of our club have been showing up. 

 

Men & women of the club: can we do better this year? It’s one of our ways of giving back to the community, and of supporting our ecologic mission.

 

Just show up (no need to register in advance) at the left fork restroom/changing area on 

 

Saturday April 20, 2019 at 10 am.  

 

Gloves and bags are provided; many members bring their own gloves. Clean-up lasts until 12:00pm, or earlier if the work is completed. A lot of volunteers will make for a good time and short work. 

 

And free food afterwards from the VCS at the MV Sailing  Camp Park in OB from 12:00 – 2 pm! The clean-up after party will include a raffle. (see below)

 

 

 

"VCS Earth Day Beach Clean-Up After Party

Join the Vineyard Conservation Society (VCS) at the Oak Bluffs Sailing Camp for great food, a free raffle, and to compare your treasure hunting stories. There will be plenty of soups, salad and pizza for all. And of course there will be treats. No hardworking beach-cleaner should go without some refreshments.

This year’s event will feature two raffles, one for adults and another for the kids. We will be giving out prizes all party long. Another fun prize comes courtesy of the MV Shellfish Group, who are holding their fundraiser extravaganza later that night: show your selfie from the Beach Clean-Up at the door and get $5 off of admission. Finally, many thanks to Coral Shockey from Featherstone Center for the Arts for bringing some art education to the event, sharing the joy of creative garbage-craft with kids of all ages. 

 Saturday, April 20 at 12:00pm to 2:00pm
