July 5th “The Day After” beach cleanup a success!

This year’s 9th annual July 5th beach cleanup was a success.¬† The Day After our celebration of our nation’s freedom results in a lot of trash and our community came together to keep our beaches clean.¬† A huge shout out to Jerry Folckemer of Old City Homes, LLC for being our title sponsor and to Jessica Clark of First Coast News and News4Jax for recognizing our efforts.

Our adoptees deserve a huge thanks too! Full Circle Resource Management, St. Augustine Surfschool, The Beachcomber’s restaurant, Trish Becker and Adam Morley, Therese Denman, and Liz the Fruitsurfer.

With everyone’s help and dedication we were able to collect almost 5,000 cigarette butts and 500 pounds of trash with over 175 volunteers.

Great job everyone and see you next year!
