Cleaning the beach

On July 23, 2006, the Hickam Boy Scouts did a great job clearing away the wood that was piled up on the beach from the prior clean-up on July 16, 2006. They collected and hauled away 5 truckloads of wood and left the beach looking clean.

After the extensive media coverage of their plight and volunteerism, the general public gave the scouts cash and gifts. The scouts were so impressed with the aloha they were given that they did a another beach clean-up on August 2, 2006 with Suzanne the day before they left for California.
