IT’S TIME TO FIGHT DIRTY!
Community Facilities Committee chair Don Deraska is organizing a community work session for the upcoming holiday weekend of October 7-9; currently planning on 9A-1P on Saturday and Sunday, and recognizing the members might have their own yards to clean up. Monday will be held as a catch-up day should the weather not cooperate on Saturday and Sunday. Tasks include: a) repairs to stretches of the beachside fence along Coastal highway (except for some stretches we are considering completely replacing in the near future), b) cleaning debris from stretches of various drainage swales-mostly pineside, but also short stretches on the beach side adjacent the above mentioned fence and c) collecting loose pine needles from the pineside and redistributing them along Beach Plum Rd planting beds. Don has sent a text to those who asked to be on his notification list; for further information contact him at 781-367-1271.
Volunteer in our community! Volunteers are the most important resource our community has.
“[MBA] is a very unusual association. I don’t know of another association with this kind of volunteerism. It started with the building of the dunes [after the 1962 storm]. Everybody came out and helped.”
— Amy Peoples
The ability of our residents to work willingly together for the betterment of our community and themselves is a valuable resource. Ideally, our volunteers find the donation of their time and energy a meaningful experience for themselves as well as for the MBA.
We are very grateful to the many individuals who have lent their time and talents over the years since MBA began.
We look forward to even more of our amazing community members joining us. The following are our current standing committees:
