If you missed our well attended 79th Annual Meeting, some highlights: Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz and Councilman Chaim Deutsch installed our Officers and Board members. (Senator Gounardes was unable to attend due to his impending wedding).. President Baron gave an update on actions the MBCG is taking with regard to Federal monies being misspent on storm recovery. While promises were made to us, nothing is being proposed to keep our residents and homes safe in case of a future (“Sandy”) weather event. She encouraged everyone to attend future MBCG meetings where we continue to present issues that are important to everyone who lives in our community. Thank you to all those who put this Annual Meeting together.
Thanks to Justin Bulova from Grades of Green organized the Bi-Coastal Cleanup, from Manhattan Beach, New York to Manhattan Beach California on this past Saturday, September 21.
Many thanks to all the volunteers for their efforts and contribution to our community and the environment.
Special thanks to Senator Andrew Gounardes and Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz for their support of and attendance at this event.
In New York, The Manhattan Beach Bay cleanup site, there were 65 volunteers from iMishpacha, Manhattan Beach Community Group, Reprise Digital, Bowery Farming and the Third Rail, volunteers collected 936 pounds of trash covering a coastal territory that stretches just over one mile.
Recycling 936 pounds of trash saves 17 Gallons of Oil, 38 Gallons of Water and 101 Hours of Electricity. 936 pounds of commingled materials is about as heavy as a bear, nearly as heavy as a grand piano, and weighs more than a horse. Volunteers filled 34 heavy-duty trash bags, and even educated 9 members of the community during the cleanup; informing them of the environmental impact littering by the bay has on the eco-system.
