Um, you can't do it on the weekend? Unfortunately, I work weekdays.

So what does it being a "holiday" have to do with anything??? That just means mostly government, banking, insurance, etc workers can participate. Most in the private sector will be working!

Future Islander,

Have you tried contacting the Pineapple Village Condo Association? http://www.pvcavi.com/ I don't know how many owners frequent this forum but I would hope that they would be very interested in this event.

FI: are garbage bags going to be provided? After a bad fall a couple of months ago my rickety old spine isn't working too well where raking is concerned but I can put in a couple of early hours picking up general trash and can bring bags if needed.

G-Dub-Ya:

Yes, we have contacted the Pineapple Village Association. We're awaiting a reply....but we know that one owner will be participating.

Point Pleasant will be providing 12 people (to date) for this effort.

Old Tart:

We're not sure, as yet, what supplies will be provided. We're working with the Smith Bay Community Association on this. But we will need rakes, gloves, shovels and garbage bags. The Smith Bay Association is arranging for a dumpster.

We plan to start at around 07:30 - 08:00 on Monday, February 20th.

Two weeks ago the Point Pleasant Resort Community Outreach Committee (8 of us) did clean cans, bottles and other debris from Pineapple Beach. This new effort plans to clean all materials from the beach, including seaweed.

The Beach Clean-Up went very well.........and it's not over.

Next Sunday we're returning to do more.

This was an effort by the Point Pleasant Resort Community Outreach Committee, the Smith Bay Community Organization, Pineapple Village Association, guests staying at Point Pleasant & Pineapple Village and other tourists that heard about our effort here on VI NOW. There were about 60 people there.

We filled 110 large garbage bags and countless trash cans with debris. We even had a backhoe to remove three sunken boats.

The Smith Bay Community Organization provided water, juice, fruit and sandwiches....thank you!

The beach looks BEAUTIFUL!

Glad it worked out well and that there were so many participants. Since you said that a crew had been out there a couple of weeks ago and cleared out much of the general litter, I wouldn't be of much help with the raking and decided against it. It certainly was a lovely morning for it, and did it actually start early?

Yes, we started at 07:30 AM and finished around 11:00 AM.

We plan to go back on Sunday, February 26th, at 07:30 AM (hopefully) with a power rake.......and to remove most of the vegetation.

I noticed two people running and walking the beach this morning (Tuesday)....something that I haven't seen for some time.
