The Belle Harbor Property Owners Association, the Rockaway Park Homeowners Association and Residents Association teamed up for their Annual Beach Cleanup on Saturday, May 10. The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation supplied a variety of tools used during the cleanup and Rite-Aide sponsored the event by providing "Beach Clean- Up" t-shirts. Adults and children from the local schools raked the beaches and painted walls.
