Need Community Service Hours? Boynton Needs You

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If you are in need of logging community service hours due to a past indiscretion, or you just want to help out the community, Boynton Beach is asking for help:

Volunteers are needed for two clean-up activities taking place in the Boynton Beach area on Sat., April 5. Beginning at 8:00 a.m., members of the Boynton Beach Fishing Club will led a clean-up initiative at Harvey Oyer Park, 2010 N. Federal Hwy., just south of Gateway Boulevard, along the Intracoastal. To assist in cleaning the surrounding mangroves, kayakers are encouraged to bring their own kayaks. Kayaks may be rented by contacting Dean Ernst, at Paddle Away Sports, at 561.541.6784 or papasgotcha2013@yahoo.com. The clean-up is expected to last until 12 Noon. To volunteer, call 561.703.5638 or email BoyntonBchFishClub@att.net. Additional information on the Boynton Beach Fishing Club can be found at www.BIFC.org.

The second clean-up will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park located at 6415 N. Ocean Blvd. (A1A) in Ocean Ridge, just north of the Ocean Avenue bridge. Coordinated by the volunteer organization, Sand Sifters, this clean-up is expected to continue until 10:15 a.m. Parking is complimentary for volunteers. To volunteer, call 561.734.9128, email therecipeexchange@comcast.net or simply meet at the pavilion located in the lower parking lot. Sand Sifters meet the first Saturday of every month to clean-up Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park. More information on the Sand Sifters can be found at www.SandSifters.us.
