Jericho Sailing Centre – Annual Spring Clean-up-Saturday March 31

The JSCA encourages all members to participate in the 2019 Jericho Sailing Centre Annual Spring Clean-up by keeping your boat and storage space ship shape and by participating with volunteer work parties in 2019 to help clean up aisle ways and other common space areas. We have recycling bins onsite for the early spring to facilitate compound clean-up; please pitch in. Members can jettison their onsite sorted junk into the recycling bins on the main aisle way anytime or join in on our organized volunteer work parties on Saturday March  31 @ 1100H. (it is exceptionally bad form to deposit junk from elsewhere into our bins; those caught doing so will be sent home with rabbits).
