Destination Imagination: Beach Clean Up

Do you remember my last article? It was about a fundraiser that my Destination Imagination team did to raise money for our community service project to clean up Huntington Beach. After that fundraiser, our team, The Aqua Girls, decided that we would like to meet with the Bay Village Green Team and the Bay Village City Council. 

Before we met with them, we wrote a presentation to say in front of them. We all wrote different things that we thought were important to tell them about Destination Imagination and our community service project. We are hoping that they will become community partners with us and support our project. If they agree to be community partners with us, we are hoping that they will have advice for us. 

After we emailed the Bay Village Green Team three of the members asked if they could attend one of our meetings. We were so excited! The members that we met with were Lori Sprosty, Heather Bingaman and Tara Wendell. It gave us a chance to rehearse our presentation and answer questions that they had about our project. 

They had wonderful suggestions for us to think about like asking us if we think we should teach the community about why the beach is dirty and how we can stop polluting it. We really appreciate Ms. Lori, Ms. Heather and Ms. Tara for coming to our meeting and helping us.

We have also been creating an advertisement about our beach clean up. We hope to talk to all the local businesses and hang our advertisements for the community to see. One of our goals is for the entire Bay Village community to come to Huntington Beach on Saturday, April 28, from 1-3 p.m. and help make our beach beautiful. Stay tuned!
