HOLGATE LBI

BEACH CLEAN UP

On March 22nd we held the 2nd beach cleanup at the Forsythe Wildlife Area in Holgate on LBI. We had 125 people come out for this clean up, members from NJBBA, Merchantville Fishing Club, Long Beach Island Fishing Club, Barrington Fishing Club, Barnegat Bay Heavers, and a bus load of students from the Triton Regional High School, in Runnemede, NJ. Also residents from Holgate and other towns from the island showed up to help. In about 4 hours we picked up enough trash & junk to fill two 40 yard dumpsters. NJBBA would like to thank everyone that took their time to make this beach cleanup so successful.

A very special thank you goes out to our hospitably crew for getting there early to

have coffee and donuts ready for everybody when they arrived. And then they

put together a gourmet lunch for the hungry workers, of hotdogs and a great

chilly on a very windy and cold day. We would also like to thank Margret from

Jingles Bait and Tackle for getting the word out for another successful beach

cleanup.

Thank you

Paul Harris…..Chairman
