For 14 years the members of the Bayside Anglers Group have put together the "Little Neck " Bass Beach Clean-up". Little Neck " Bass Beach" is one of the most popular local fishing spots. The waterways have been the cleanest they have been in years so that makes for "good eats".
Civic Associations, volunteer organizations and local politicians from all over Northeast Queens have been coming out to lend a hand in order to help keep America's waterways clean and the aquatic environment thriving. The weather held out for us to get about 20 bags of garbage, logs, tires, bicycles, cushions off the shores and on to the side of the Cross Island awaiting pick-up from the NYC Department of Parks. Councilman Avella who has been an avid supporter of the event for the past 14 years always seems to get himself involved in the community and is always a big help weeding out the trash. The Bayside Anglers Group always seem to get the nicest organizations throughout the community to pitch in and lend a hand. This year a new group was added to the mix and a warm welcome was given to the oceanographic students of St. Johns University. The Bayside Anglers Group, the U.S Coast Guard Auxiliary 12-08, Fort Totten, Friends of Fort Totten, and the many other group organizations all share the same common bond of helping to keep the environment clean and safe, help keep the community clean and safe and help to keep America beautiful.
The Bayside Anglers Group always shows their appreciation for a job well done by contributing good food, raffles, and plenty of giveaways.
