27 help cleanup Myers Park beach

Chris Flynn sent in this report on a beach clean-up at Myers Park Beach on Saturday. Thanks, Chris:
I'm sorry I didn't let you know in advance, but yesterday morning (Sat 9/20), 27 of us met at Myers Park (Dragon Boat Race site, 11th & Lake Michigan) for the International Coastal Cleanup. We picked up 85# of trash, consisting of plastic odds & ends, cigarette butts, diapers, bottles, a couple of tires, etc. The list of what was collected was submitted online to The group included members of Rotary, St. Cat's students and teacher, Hoy/Audubon members, and a young couple who were visiting from St. Louis and wanted to help. We'll be down there again the morning of 10/25 for Make a Diff Day.
