On Saturday at 8am, over 40 residents and business owners met at Turquoise Coffee for the First Quarterly North PB Clean-Up. PB Town Council supplied everything we needed for a successful clean-up to include trash bags, picker uppers & gloves. In addition, Turquoise Cellars gave everybody a free coffee, juice or hot chocolate and the combined forces of Advent Real Estate & North PB gave away hats & reusable bags.
We split the the volunteers up into teams and had them start at Turquoise Coffee and head North & South on Cass Street going up and down the Alleys and side streets from Turquoise St to Diamond St. The outcome was around 30 bags of trash. Most of it being cigarette butts in the alleys and gutters. All in all, North PB was surprisingly clean.
We are very pleased with the turnout of our first North PB Clean-up. Pacific Beach Elementary was kind enough to send out a dedicated email to all of the parents. We also used Nextdoor.com & Advent Real Estate, North PB Life & North PB Sip N Stroll to get the word out on Social Media.
We plan on doing this quarterly in different areas of North PB. The next one will be in mid July and will tackle the Turquoise Business District. For all of the photos, visit: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.922247621131818.1073741831.793209527368962&type=3
It would be great if everybody could post this to their Social Media, Newsletters, etc. I am confident that within a year we can get over 100 volunteers and cover a much larger area of North PB.
Thanks again to everybody.
