The partner business this month was the Marco Island Hilton Resort. Manager, Mr. Mac Chaudhry had approximately fifteen of his staff members participate. The beach was observed to be well maintained, but the group still managed to collect ten large bags of trash. While enjoying the beautiful morning, the beach walkers found items such as beer cans and bottles, bags, and most abundantly, bottle caps and cigarette butts along the beachfront and in the dune areas.
The next monthly City of Marco Island Beach Advisory Committee Beach Clean Up is scheduled for Sunday, November 21st at 7 AM at the South Beach Access. The business partners for this clean up are M&I Bank and Marco YMCA.
All public are encouraged and welcome to volunteer and to participate. If a student or group needs to accrue community volunteer hours, this is a great way to earn a few hours.
