Andrew Davis, Volunteer Steward of Sargisson Beach, has announced the annual Sargisson Beach Cleanup for this Saturday, June 15th, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. ‘The beach is located off Whiley Road, which runs off Route 119 between Ixtapa Mexican Cantina and Craven’s Package Store.

He wrote in a press release:

“Come down and meet your fellow neighbors and residents of Groton and help clean up the beach! Wouldnt it be great to have a nice clean sandy beach for the 4th of July and the start of the summer? Parents… come down for an hour before the kids get going and help us clean up the beach.

The Weed Harvester Committee is providing a large trailer to use to remove the weeds… our job is to fill it up. The beach is in much better shape after a spring and fall cleanup than it was last year, so this should be a much easier project — cleaning up, raking and removing dead weed buildup on the beach. We will rake and shovel this into wheel barrows and deposit it in the weed harvester trailer.

What to wear: Gloves, closed toed shoes/hiking boots, long pants or bring bug spray.
Bring Hand Tools: Garden rakes, shovel, pitch fork, snow shovel. Wheel barrow, or hand cart and barrel if you have access to one.”
