IBSP beach cleanup March 2024

It was a beautiful day for a beach clean-up. The tide was low, the sun was shining bright, with a slight breeze. The beach driving conditions were fair with some soft sand and some erosion here and there. The 20 members and 9 beach loving volunteers gave up their Saturday too master this event with 10 vehicles in all. The entire oceanside of IBSP was cleaned up in just 2 hours and 56 minutes, a job well done. Besides the usual trash, plastic pieces of various sizes and shapes, balloons/ribbons, straws, and beach whistles were picked up. Some rather large commercial fishing baskets, a tire on a wheel and 4 truckloads of assorted sizes of wood pieces up to 12 feet long are no longer littering the beach front. The most unusual find at this event was a wallet full of sand that contained a New York driver’s license, thanks for the find, Matt. This was reported to the IBSP Office. The wallet was dropped in the mail on Monday for a surprise visit back to the owner. A big thank you goes out to everyone that showed up for this event.

Thanks to all who participated  AND

Members of NJBBA teamed up with some students from the Donovan Catholic School of Toms River, NJ. On the first day of spring, the sun was shining, the wind was light, and all the volunteers were in good spirits to clean the environment of some trash. 37 beach lovers loaded up 4 trucks with wood and other debris that had washed ashore in recent storms. They were also able to fill 10 or so bags with plastic pieces, balloons, discarded beach toys, a shoe or two and other types of trash. I thank you all for taking the time to keep IBSP as clean as possible.Ken Hollins NJBBA #23
