On Sunday, Sept. 24, a beach cleanup was held in Oak Bluffs. (The Saturday cleanup was canceled because of rain.) According to a press release, thanks go out to Susan Santos and Joe Scanlan of Oak Bluffs for their help. Thanks also go to Nicole Morey of the Oak Bluffs Highway Department for arranging to have debris picked up. And special thanks go to Joe Scanlan, who cleaned the entire north bluff from the Steamship Authority to the bulkhead by himself. Ten bags of rubbish were collected in all.
