The Striper Surf Club's 6th Annual Beach Clean Up Saturday April 21, 2007

2007 Striper Surf Club Beach Clean Up and some of it's 50 Volunteers


The Striper Surf Club, Inc. held it's 6th Annual Beach Clean Up at the Jones Beach State Park, West End north side parking area on Saturday April 21, 2007.  This year's event was a great success with nearly 50 local volunteers removing debris, and household garbage from our beautiful beaches.  This year's weather cooperated and was filled with clear skies and brilliant sunshine!

Everyone left with not only a good feeling about keeping our beaches clean but with a full stomach and a few nice raffle prizes. We would like to also thank all the hard working members of the Striper Surf Club for putting this all together and the NYS Parks Department.

We had representations from Farragut Striper Club, Gateway Striper Club, Mid-Island Surfcasters, High Hill Striper Club, CCA, LIBBA, MSA (Willy Young) and many non-club members. If I left anyone out please forgive us.

We had over many contributing tackle sponsors. Please frequent these retailers, guides and tackle shops. They are Surfrats.com, Paulie’s B&T of Montauk, Causeway B&T of Wantagh, Kwaks B&T of Wantagh, The Causeway Deli of Wantagh, CCA, LIBBA, Bill Wetzel, Fishingpin.com, Lamiglas, Van Staal, Saint Croix, Uncle Josh Pork Rinds, OldHarborOutfitters.com, Power Pro Fishing Line.

The Striper Surf Club, Inc. would like to say Thank You for all your help! Keeping these beaches clean and access open is an important issue to all surf clubs and surf rats. We care about our environment and the people who came to help demonstrated that volunteerism is still alive and well on Long Island. Those who brought their children to the clean up get an extra thank you! You lead by example! Smile It was also nice to meet & put faces with the folks here on the internet!
