A call for volunteers! The Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach Team!

Volunteers pose for a picture at our March 19th spring kickoff beach cleanup!

Do you care about Lake Erie....the water we drink...our beaches and our wildlife?  Do you visit and use Euclid Beach, Villa Angela or Wild Wood State Parks? Do you care about access to quality recreational parks in your community?  

Then join Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach Volunteers For A Volunteer Meeting and discussion on Tuesday, April 19th, at 6pm at the Arts Collinwood Community Center!  (397 East 156th Street-The Community Center is located behind the Cafe Arts Collinwood)

*Refreshments will be provided courtesy of The Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach Team and The Cafe Arts Collinwood.

This meeting is open to anyone and everyone! This is a great opportunity to get involved, give back to your community, take care of our parks and of course, get out to the beach! Please help us prepare for events and activities planned for the spring/summer/fall of 2011!  

Here are some activities and events that we need volunteers for: 

Monthly Beach Cleanups (collecting/tallying trash on the beach and conducting beach observations)-the next cleanup will be on Saturday April 16th from 10am-12pm
Event Support (we will have several summer events at Euclid Beach Park and need your help!) 
Marketing, Communications and Pubilc Awareness
Social Media 
Emptying Recycling Bins Weekly At Euclid Beach Park 
Submitting Park Observations to State Park Officials
Advocacy Initiatives 
Community and Local Business Engagement 
Grant Research and Grant Writing 
Purchasing and Reimbursements 

We believe that there is a collective desire in the community to make Euclid Beach Villa Angela and Wildwood parks cleaner and safer public parks for both recreation and preservation. Together, let's make that desire a reality! A better quality park translates into a better quality of life for neighborhood residents and the community as a whole, making it an asset for years to come! 

Adopt-a-Beach is a volunteer organization and partner of the Alliance for The Great Lakes, a Chicago based non-profit dedicated to sustaining and improving the health of our lakes and beaches. 

Can't wait for the April 19th meeting to volunteer? Then, please e-mail Stephen Love at stephen.love20@gmail.com or call 216-571-0685
