A group of volunteers took to the beaches and roads of West Island in Fairhaven on Saturday, 4/6/19, to clean up the winter’s mess. “Just wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to the awesome volunteers both from the island and the local businesses in town,” wrote organizer Jill Souza on Facebook. “The generous support from our sponsors covered all expenses, please continue to support them as they do us! The best part to me is seeing all ages come together whether helping set up, handing out shirts, towing boats and much more. The island is a better place because of everyone involved.” Items included a small fiberglass boat, tires, windows, pallets, and even a broken toilet. Some items were on the beach, some had clearly been dumped in the wooded areas off the roads. The Fairhaven Public Works Department took away the pile on Monday, 4/8.
