Ron Jon Hosts Beach Cleanup, Gives Away Surf Board

by April 27, 2009 • 9 comments

_mg_5330wtmkCome hungry and ready to pick up trash because Sunday Morning, Ron Jon Surf Shop in Panama City Beach’s Pier Park will be hosting their 2nd annual beach cleanup.  Coffee and donuts will be served and all that show up will automatically be entered to win a free surf board.

Last year participants came to support our area and show their appreciation for our beautiful beaches.  When asked what spawned the idea, Dan Kirk, General Manager of Ron Jon said, “we just love the beach, that’s our area’s greatest assett and we always pick up trash anyway, so we thought this would be a good way to bring the community together.”

Dan said everyone should arrive at 7:30 am Sunday morning to coffee and donuts.  They’ll then be escorted across the beach to pick up trash and clean up from around the city pier down to Barefoot Beach Club and back.  All that show up to help clean up will be entered to win a free surf board.  When they get back from cleaning up, the drawing will take place and one lucky winner will go home with a free beautiful board pictured above.

Oh that is totally cool! We’re coming to PCB end of May, so we’ll miss it. But I promise to carry my empty bag about with me on our beach when we come there in May!
