A small but enthusiastic group from All Saints’ met at Kealia Beach Park after Church on April 22 to celebrate Earth Day with a beach cleanup. The recent storm left lots of debris and our crew worked diligently to help with the enormous task of making our beach safe and welcoming again. We spent a large portion of our time making piles with logs, branches, and other plant matter. As we made these piles we uncovered plastic. With the aid of rakes, dip nets, and old fashioned sorting by hand, we filtered out plastic to be removed from the beach. After two hours of work we could see that we made a small dent in returning Kealia to its pre-storm beauty. Many thanks to Wayne Doliente, who also brought water for our thirsty work, Jan Hashizume, Janis Wright, Cheryl Glenn, Ron Morinishi, and CeCe Caldwell for contributing their time to this worthy cause. 

For those of you who couldn’t join us - Every time you go to the beach, spend 5 minutes collecting and disposing of garbage before you relax and enjoy yourself. It is an outward and visible sign of your care for God’s creation.
