The Point B Beach Clean-Up Team grew to 29-strong this year — our biggest beach team yet — for the annual Martha’s Vineyard Beach Clean-up. The 24th annual Earth Day event organized by the Vineyard Conservation Society, targeted 25 beaches across Martha’s Vineyard.
The large Point B Team was easily spotted by their colorful clean-up jerseys, as the group spread out across Lighthouse Beach and parts of nearby Fuller Street Beach, both on Edgartown Harbor.
Though the temperatures were a little chilly, spirits were warmed by the sunny, blue skies.
With the picturesque backdrop of Edgartown Harbor and Nantucket Sound, it was easy to stay motivated, and be reminded of the incredible natural beauty of the Island — and why keeping it clean and pristine is important for the shared use by both people and wildlife.
The Martha’s Vineyard Beach Clean-Up has become a fun family affair for Point B. Large and small, this family-friendly environmental event combines teachable moments with team building, and volunteering for the community we all love, and live-in.
We’d like to thank our Point B staff, their families and friends: Jen O’Hanlon and Grace; Guinevere Cramer, Anderson and Charly; Sheylah Callen and Hugo; Julia Smith and Hailey, Mya, and Hudson; Allison Savva and Brynn and Asher; Kathy and Steve Pogue, Molly, Paige and Spencer; Kristin Buck and Brian Smith and Alice; Erin Leighton; Kseniia Goggins; Lang Clark; Trish Lyman; Wendy Harman and Win Baker.
