A beach cleanup of the Playa Flamingo area took place Aug. 6 at both bays and the mangroves. The community was invited, and gloves, bags and a little snack were provided. Participants included four Tourist Police officers, volunteers from the Coast Guard, Larry Barrows, owner of the Mariner Inn, and other local residents. They collected 3 kilograms of plastic (recycling), 2 kg of aluminum and 45 kg of nonrecyclables. The next beach cleanup is set for Nov. 12.
