– Anne Kepple, Cabana Committee Chair
On Saturday October 7th, seven women met over at the Beach Cabana to help the city of North Myrtle Beach in a *Beach Sweep*. Our instructions were to pick up trash from the dunes as well as the Cabana property and our beach front. We worked for a couple of hours cleaning our property as well as the neighboring properties. The city provided *pickers* and we supplied our plastic bags. This sweep only takes place twice a year, so that means only twice a year can anyone go into the dunes to clean them.
Some of the things we picked up were a couple hundred cigarettes butts, bottle caps, cans, bottles (one was still full of beer), paper, plastic bags, and we even found a painted rock!
The wonderful industrious group who gave up a Saturday morning to remove debris from the dunes close to the Barefoot Beach Cabana included:
- Anne Kepple (Greenbriar)
- Janet Sai (Greenbriar)
- Sandy Swartz (Dye Estates)
- Pat Henry (Bridle Ridge)
- Trish Morris (Willow Bend)
- Sarah Burgan (Tanglewood)
- Karen Schwartz (Longbridge)
This sweep will take place again in the Spring. I hope to see more of you out to help us next time. I would also like to thank the seven ladies who volunteered their time to make our beautiful beach front property "shine" again.
