Beach clean-up — Saturday, May 3

Mackenzie’s 6th Annual Beach clean up will be held on May 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be check in tables at Walnut Beach and Silver Sands State Park. The event was started by then 4-year-old Mackenzie when she noticed that the beaches were dirty and she wanted to clean the trash. The clean-up is co-sponsored by The Walnut Beach Association, Save the Sound and the Stratford Home Depot. Gloves and bags will be provided. There will be free ice cream for the first 100 volunteers, compliments of the Walnut Beach Creamery. Go to for more information.
