SATURDAY: Start your 4th with a community cleanup @ Alki

Your neighbor Jessica is organizing community cleanups at Alki Beach every first Saturday, 10 am-2 pm. Yes, THIS Saturday – the Fourth of July – too! “Meet outside 2452 Alki Ave SW. Help pick up garbage before it ends in the ocean. Bring gloves, mask, and a bucket or garbage bag with handles for ease. I have 10 pick sticks provided by City of Seattle. Please RSVP at 206.769.6330. Supervised children welcome. FRIENDLY LEASHED Pets welcome but cannot be on Beach. Let’s keep Alki clean.”

    With the current pandemic at hand and it being a holiday on Saturday, is it really a great idea to be having an organized gathering? A beach clean up is great, but this 4th as it is Alki is going to be facing major crowd issues. People should stay home to stop the spread of this virus, the residents of Alki beach, myself included, would very much appreciate that.

    This is great!

    To speak to Nicole’s concern, what about planning for early morning work instead, to avoid the busier times there?

    Also, would it make sense to postpone this until after the 4th? There may be a bit more to clean up after this holiday weekend. Though I really hope most just stay home. IMO Alki beach should be for Alki residents this weekend, with covid surging right now.

    Otherwise, I really appreciate this and hope there is good participation!  I think folks should be able to social distance, wear masks, and keep moving, and have this be pretty low risk.

Sorry, comment time is over.
