Volunteers sought for Beach Sweep
Holland Sentinel

Volunteers are needed for the seventh annual Beach Sweep.

The annual beach cleanup is set for over three days this year in Ottawa County from Thursday through Saturday. The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

The James and Riley street beaches will be cleaned on Thursday. Holland State Park, and Quincy Street beaches will be cleaned on Friday. Laketown, Tunnel Park, Kirk Park, Rosy Mound, Grand Haven State and city beaches, North Shore, Brucker Street and Windsnest beaches will be cleaned on Saturday.

Beach Sweep is a cooperative effort of Greater Ottawa County United Way and Volunteer Center and the Lake Michigan Federation. The event is part of an international effort to clean up shorelines of oceans, rivers and inland lakes.

"This is one of the rare opportunities where an individual, family, group and/or school can come out and make an immediate difference in their environment and be a part of a global event," said Carol Dillenbeck, volunteer center program coordinator.

Preregistration is not necessary to volunteer. For more information contact the volunteer center at (616) 396-7811.
