Islanders, I really hope you guys can make it to a clean-up site near you for this very worthy event. For you off-island folks, if you live near the water I encourage you to check into a coastal clean-up effort happening in your area this coming Saturday.

    Awesome! I hope there’s a big turn out for that. I wish more people would do their share in cleaning the beaches here in South Texas or at least wish they would enforce the littering fines. Our beaches are sad.
