We moved our September Wednesday meeting to the SECOND Wednesday, September 14th at 5:30 ish.
September 10 cleanup:
We will be focused on removing orphan crab traps from the West side of Cedar Island. You must have a boat or a seat on a boat to participate in this cleanup. Those who attended our last First Wednesday meeting and said they were going all have boat seats.
We will be leaving the Pole Yard boat ramp at 7:30 am. Make sure you bring insect repellent and a shovel if you have one. If not, you can drag traps down to a collection point.
We cannot get permits from Memorial Day through Labor Day due to the congestion at the boat ramps. Throughout the summer we will be staging small cleanups that involve retrieving some trash and debris we had to leave behind on past cleanups.
Check back for fall scheduled cleanups
NOTE 1: On some of these cleanups, jon boats will be on hand to tow the collected trash back to shore.
NOTE 2: You can deduct as a charitable contribution any unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses, such as the cost of gas and oil, that are directly related to the use of your car in giving services to a charitable organization. You cannot deduct general repair and maintenance expenses, depreciation, registration fees, or the costs of tires or insurance.
Note: The IRS has informed us that this provision also applies for boats since it is the vehicle used to perform the volunteer service.
