SHOUT OUT TO YOUNG CONSERVATIONISTS DIMITRI AND SVETLANA!

Svetlana, Dimitri, and Robert

This amazing family was in the parking lot at Good Harbor Beach. They had collected a trash bag full of garbage from around the lot. Dad Robert explained that because they love Good Harbor Beach so much, and go often during the summer, they wanted to give back.

Our DPW does an incredible job keeping the beach and lot clean however, it’s impossible for any one entity to keep up with the amount of litter that happens on our beaches. It takes a village, and it is people like Sveltana, Dimitri, and Robert that are making a real difference.

*Although I wrote down the names of the kids, somehow the message to myself was deleted. I think their names are spelled correctly, but if not, please write. Thank you šŸ™‚

Nice letter from Patti Amaral in today’s Gloucester Daily Times writing on behalf of the city’s Clean City Initiative. She thanked the city, donors and supporters while providing some background about the Carry In Carry Out art. In case you missed it: Nov 9 2017Ā  Letter to the Editor

Patti Amaral thanks Jason Burroughs for Public Art and other community partners for help with beach and gardens

The murals were refurbished by Jason Burroughs in October 2017. They were designed and painted by Bob Viau from StudioVo 15 years ago.Ā Here are a few photos documenting the refurbishing. The Wingaersheek wall needed more attention.

Sad smile

Hereā€™s a big bag of suck from Janet Rice.  (yesterdayā€™s feel good story of the day gets turned on itā€™s ear by some rotten bastards)

Janet Rice reports-

Last evening I stopped by the Good Harbor footbridge to enjoy the sunset and I noticed something was missing and something was added.No nicely painted rock to remind people to take care of our beach and a big pile of trash to replace it. Really? So sad….

Hereā€™s the post from yesterday that had everyone cheering-
