The Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island participated in two beach/park clean-ups on Earth Day, April 22.  In the morning, the club partnered with The Outside Foundation for an island-wide beach sweep, with Rotarians focused on Chaplin Beach Park.  The clean-up was completed in time for the Rotarians to attend their weekly Zoom meeting!  Later in the day, Rotarians participated in a beach sweep at the very tourist-popular Coligny Beach.  The effort was sponsored by USCB Professor Keri Olivetti, who is the parent of one of the club’s EarlyAct members.  Professor Olivetti’s students in the USCB Center for Festival and Community Event Planning course were tasked with the planning and execution of the event. Prizes were awarded for most trash collected, most valuable item found, largest piece of trash found, and much more!
