Next week the annual shoreline cleanup day takes place. To get this done, we're recruiting new and old members and leaders for the BYC Stewardship Committee. Please know that under the leadership of our own beloved member and marine biologist Carol Keiper through the years, this event has been a huge success and an incredible community builder of new relationships throughout the marina. We now NEED YOU to help us continue this tradition.
