Big Sweep is Saturday in Calabash

-A A +A

Help clean Calabash and enjoy a free lunch.

Volunteers with North Carolina Big Sweep will descend on the Seafood Capital 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, and anyone interested is invited to pitch in and help.

Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at Calabash Community Park at the corner of Traders Lane and Persimmon Road to receive safety vests, gloves, trash bags and instructions.

Teams will fan out to clean Calabash streets or, for those with boats, the Calabash River.

Return to the park at 11 a.m. for a welcome-back chicken bog lunch.

Prizes to be given for the most unusual trash.

Pre-register by calling Calabash Town Hall (910) 579-6747 so organizers will know how many vests and gloves to order and how much chicken bog to prepare.
