Aqua Girls brave weather for beach cleanup

It rained and rained on our beach cleanup day but that didn’t stop over 100 people coming to help us clean up the beach on April 28. We spent over an hour picking up the trash from the beach. 

We found so much trash and even two tires in the lake! We sorted our trash and tallied up what we collected and also weighed the trash. When I have those results, I will write them in my column for the Observer.

As we were leaving, our community partners told us it was their most successful beach clean up ever.

Thank you Kacy Carmichael from the Cleveland Metroparks, Amy Roskilly and Suzanne Krippel from the Great Lakes Restoration Intiative, Lori Sprosty from the Bay Village Green Team, Tara Wendell from the Observer, our families, our friends from Westerly Elementary and our teachers Mrs. Harmount, Miss McMaugh, Mrs. Fisher and the whole community of Bay Village. We couldn’t have done the cleanup without your help!
