Some event cancellations due to VOLCANIC HAZE

Cough, cough, cough.

Hafa Adai Everyone,

First things first, there were three cleanups over the weekend:

The Port Operators & Users Committee cleaned up the W-2 Highway from Bank of Hawaii to Shell Puerto Rico & Industrial Dr. on Friday while Palu Potu cleaned up Tun Kioshi Rd. and the Garapan Ad Hoc Committee cleaned up, well, Garapan, on Saturday. Thank you everyone who participated!


I hope that the students on this mailing list are enjoying their days off from school this week. When I was growing up in Massachusetts we used to have Snow Days; here on Saipan we have Volcano Days! How cool is that?

Well, not so cool if you are trying to plan OUTDOOR volunteer activities.

Except for the NMDOA/JSTA cleanup of Obyan Beach on Saturday, all of the Beautify CNMI! cleanups have been canceled this weekend. Division of Environmental Quality WILL NOT be cleaning Bird Island Beach and Saipan Southern High School National Honor Society will not be cleaning Koblerville on Saturday and Friends of the Mariana Island WILL NOT be cleaning Garapan on Sunday. The canceled events will be rescheduled.

Just to clarify, the Obyan Beach cleanup has not been canceled. If you would like to participate, please meet NMDOA/JSTA at the Obyan Beach parking lot at 9 AM. I will send out another email if it is canceled, but until further notice, the cleanup is still scheduled as planned.

Thanks and have a great week!


P.S. Anyone interested in a dive after (or before) Saturday's cleanup of Obyan?
