This morning was our second consecutive month cleaning the road between Northern Marianas College and San Vicente Elementary. 30 volunteers from Friends of the Marianas, Marianas Resource Conservation & Development Council, Rep. Cinta Kaipat's Office and family scoured the road for illegal litter.
The Friends of the Marianas also started digging sediment out of some of the culverts along the road. The gutters were made so that they would collect sediment and it needs to be removed periodically or it backs up and floods.
Ken Kramer, Marianas RC&D Coordinator, took the trash which we had collected. The transfer station is closed on Sundays, so he'll hold onto it and drop it off tomorrow morning.
Beautify CNMI!, for the first time in six months, have no volunteer activities planned for the next few weekends. We will have an end of year appreciation BBQ next weekend (it is also Adam's birthday).
We are going to begin focusing heavily on the Micronesian Challenge from this date on. Our first "Beautify CNMI! takes on the Micronesian Challenge" meeting will be this Thursday, December 15 at 7:30 PM. We will meet at Cafe at the Park in Garapan.
