Alumni Dispatch: Service In The Surf
This past weekend some 20 to 25 Serenity Lane alums + family members and friends hit the beaches to participate in a beach cleanup put on by AAA.
Serenity Lane alums combed beaches from Reedsport all the way north to Cannon Beach. The Roseburg clinic, Eugene clinic, Coburg campus and the Portland office all had representatives. The weather was great: slightly overcast skies but no wind. Serenity Lane teams joined as many as 5,000 volunteers from around the state. They collectively removed over 56,000 pounds of litter and marine debris from along all 362 miles of the Oregon coast! As one participant described it: It really was a lot of fun; like a treasure hunt. And it felt really good to be of service.
