On Saturday, March 29th, beach warriors gathered to help Anna with her senior project. Yes, it was rainy and yucky on the beach, but Anna made the decision to carry on with her project, and I am glad she did! Yes, it was difficult to get motivated to go out in the weather, but a lot of people did just that to clean up our beach! And just look at all the litter that was collected!
