Dear Mr. Calderon,

May we count on “Neighbors” to announce the following ECOMB community Cleanup events? Both in your Calendar, and with advance notice under the community news rubric? In addition, we would most appreciate your assigning a journalist and photographer to cover the September 14th Tatum Waterway cleanup in North Beach, and then the Monument Island Beach Cleanup, on September 21, which is International Coastal Cleanup Day. There should be good photo opportunities at both events.

Thank you,

Clotilde Luce,
Board member of ECOMB
