THE STRIPER SURF CLUB
8th ANNUAL SPRING CLEAN-UP
JONES BEACH WEST END (CONSTRUCTION DOCK)
SATURDAY APRIL 25, 2009
The Striper Surf Club, Inc will be holding its' 8th Annual Spring Beach Clean-up at Jones Beach State Park, West End, on Saturday April 25, 2009, from 8:30 am until 12 noon. Participants should meet at the Construction Dock parking area on the north side of Jones Inlet. (Turn left at Coast Guard Station) Entry fee for the West End will be waived for those informing the collector that they are participating in the clean-up.
This year, in addition to cleaning the beach, the Striper Surf Club has “adopted” a U.S Army unit presently serving in Iraq. We will be collecting donations to support the 82nd Airborne 2-505 Parachute Infantry Regiment. Items that have been suggested include cookies, baby wipes, Gold Bond powder, granola, some good coffee, and protein bars. Phone cards or other donations to assist with shipping are also appreciated.
Coffee and donuts will be served, as well as lunch after the clean up. There will also be a raffle with some great gifts provided by our sponsors. This is an all weather event, so please dress appropriately.
Last year over 50 volunteers from as far away as Rockland County, the Bronx and Suffolk County helped at this event. Among them were surf fishermen and women, Boy Scouts, families and friends who care. We had members of LIBBA, CCA, Mid Island Surfcasters, Montauk Surfcasters, Bayside Anglers, Farragut Striper Club, High Hill Striper Club, Gateway Striper Club and others giving us a hand! It was especially great to see the small group of hardy kids who braved the elements to attend. The Striper Surf Club thanks all the volunteers who gave us a hand! And of course, a thank you to the NY State Parks personnel who helped make it all happen.
Please join us for this project. Invite your fellow fishermen/women, youth groups, your family and friends. The members of the Striper Surf Club look forward to seeing you on April 25th.

The Striper Surf Club, Inc. held it's 8h Annual Beach Clean Up at the Jones Beach State Park, West End north side parking area on Saturday April 12, 2008. Once again, this year's event was a great success with nearly 60 local volunteers removing debris, and household garbage from our beautiful beaches. This year's weather was beautiful with sunny skies and warm summer like temperatures
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.
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! It was also nice to meet & put faces with the folks here on the internet!
In addition we are very grateful to all those that brought care packages for our troops serving in Iraq. These supplies will go directly to 82nd Airborne 2-505 Parachute Infantry Regiment currently serving in Baghdad Iraq.
Once again the Long Island Fishing Community came through not only to clean our beach but to help our troops serving in Iraq. The item on this table are some basic but need supplies such as fresh coffee, powder, snacks, baby wipes batteries, magazines etc. that our troops want and need
