|Fort Monroe Sea Scouts|
Shipmates came together on a 100-degree Sunday to perform community service to one of the gems in Hampton - the Newmarket Creek. A dozen scouts launched kayaks and rowboats to remove litter from this remote recreational waterway. After a short safety briefing, they launched from the floating dock at the Air Power park. Wonderful folks opened the back door to make access to the bathrooms and water much easier. We had a great surprise when the Council VP of Program, David Singletary came by to help. In all, we removed about 20 pounds of garbage from about 1 mile of waterway. I think we'll do this again, when it's not quite so HOT!
