Diamond-hunting beach cleanup


To the Editor:

Hello, friends. It is that time of year when we all gather to help clean our beaches after a long winter. Alex’s Place of the YMCA has once again made the commitment to help with the Bend-in-the-Road Beach in Edgartown as part of the Vineyard Conservation Society’s Beach Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 30, at 10 am. We would love folks of all ages to join us at the lifeguard stand at 10 am for a quick cleanup, followed by a reception at the Harbor View Hotel at noon. Representatives from Alex’s Place at the Y and Comcast will be on hand to share gloves and bags for you to use. It’s really simple, and you never know what you will find. If you want to join our team, please call Tony at 508-696-7171, ext. 128, or just come to the Bend-in-the-Road Beach. Plenty of parking, lots of sunshine, and you may find that diamond in the rough. Thanks, everyone.

Tony Lombardi
