Many hands made quick work of the litter along a long stretch of Marco’s beach Sunday morning. Those hands, swathed in disposable just not at the beach plastic gloves donated by Publix, along with collection bags and bottled water, or in sturdy gardening gloves brought from home by the veteran beach cleanup volunteers, belonged to 60 concerned citizens of all ages.
The cleaning crew mustered at the South Beach public access point before 8 a.m., and fanned out to the north and south. This is a wonderful time to get out on the beach on any nice morning, and knowing you are walking with a purpose, leaving the beach better than you found it just adds to the experience.
