Brown Club OC Day of Service - Back Bay Cleanup

You and Brown Club OC can help clean up the Back Bay!

Saturday, May2, 2015, 9 AM – 12 Noon


It’s no secret that most of the trash in Orange County washes in to Newport’s beautiful Back Bay. Brown Club OC wants to help the Newport-Irvine Rotary Club keep the Back Bay clean – Guy Harden ‘74 and Tom Lemire ’69 are already frequent volunteers. This is a great way to spend 3 hrs. on a Saturday morning enjoying the outdoors and making a difference.

It’s the first Saturday of each month – join us May 2, 2015, 9 AM to 12 Noon. Meet at the Newport Aquatic Center, 1 Whitecliffs Dr., Newport Beach, CA – there’s plenty of parking there. Wear clothes that can get both damp and dirty. Bring family and friends to help!

 There are two parts to the cleanup: Some is done on shore, and some in the water on kayaks. How are your paddling skills? Newport Aquatic Center and Southwind Kayaks supply some kayaks at no charge, but if you have your own and can throw it in your car, truck, or van, please bring it. (We know you were looking for an excuse to go kayaking on Saturday morning, and here it is.) If you’re not in a kayak, or if you are allergic to paddling, you can clean up on shore. Water shoes or rubber boots are good footwear, but wear whatever can get wet..

 And by all means – bring sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen!

 Please come and help. There’s no charge (no pay either, but you get hot dogs, etc., after), some great folks, and a lot of positive fun. You’ll be amazed at how much better the world looks after you get rid of some trash. Let’s show that Brown wants the Back Bay to be a cleaner, better place.
