October 11 is the National Beach Clean up day for Dominica. Although this is part of the International Cleanup Campaign, it is not held in September like other countries but the Dominica Youth Environment Organization (DYEO Inc) has always chosen to organize the activity for the second weekend in October.
However, this year the beach enhancement activity is shaping up to big one of the biggest in years. Over 30 communities and groups have pledged their support to participate in this islandwide campaign to rid our beaches of debris. The campaign is being supported strongly by the Dominica Reunion 2008 Office, Dominica Solid Waste Commission, the Youth Development Division and a number of other public and private sector institutions and businesses.
If you are in Dominica for the weekend please feel free to participate. For additional information you can contact the President of the DYEO (Delroy Williams) at:
