Each time we hold a ceremony, dozens of volunteers come out to help us clean up the beach. We rake any garbage out of the sand and clear off any rocks or debris. Then we set up chairs, a tent, a podium and lots of tables. Sometimes we have demonstrations from local clubs and associations, concerts from local musicians donating their time, and local radio personalities, who MC the events.

This year, we had lots of coverage on national TV and Radio. It was great to have so much support! We also had more than 10 games of soccer- from young boys and girls up to the adult level. Based on what we’ve seen, there are lots of future stars in the mix!
