Thurston PTA Beach Cleanup
Saturday, October 26 from 9AM -12PM
Location: Thalia Beach

Join us for our 2nd annual Thurston PTA Beach Cleanup. This year we are starting at Thalia and families can make their way south to Brook's Street or head north to Main Beach.

If 75 students and adults signup, we will receive 20 Disneyland tickets that will be used as student prizes for the Kindness Challenge (10 lucky kids will win 2 Disneyland tickets in an opportunity drawing.

PTA will provide environmentally friendly garbage bags and latex free gloves.

PTA will also provide water in compostable cups, coffee and snacks.

Bring your beach gear if you plan on making it a family beach day. Some of the kids might want to surf, skimboard, boogie board or just have fun tossing the football.

Great way for new families to meet new people!
