AM merchants mount trash attack

Anna Maria business owners plan to attack the problem of trash following the July 4 holiday.

The newly formed North End Merchants Organization hopes to show its community spirit with service projects and its first effort involves the Independence Day holiday weekend.

President Barbara Sato of Sato Real Estate in Anna Maria said, “This is important to NEMO. It’s our first event and we really want to show everyone that business in Anna Maria is a vital part of the community.”

NEMO plans to show its patriotic spirit by placing small U.S. flags on the roadway in the business district on Gulf Drive and Pine Avenue the morning of Saturday, July 3, for the Anna Maria Island Privateers Independence Day parade.

Then on Monday, July 5, they plan to meet in three locations at 7:15 a.m. to collect trash with garbage bags donated by the Sandbar restaurant, protective gloves donated by Feeling Swell and the Anna Maria General Store, and manpower, including owners, management and staff, of the 23 business members.

The group plans to wear “NEMO at Work” T-shirts to display the organization’s spirit and identify volunteers during the cleanup. Volunteers are welcome, and can meet at one of three zoned parking-lot locations in Anna Maria: Roser Memorial Community Church, 512 Pine Ave.; Ginny’s & Jane’s at the Old IGA, 9807 Gulf Drive; or Crosspointe Fellowship, 8605 Gulf Drive. Volunteers will receive a NEMO T-shirt, while supplies last, and cleanup supplies at the zone location.

The Roser zone will clean up on Pine Avenue and on Bay Boulevard from the Waterfront Restaurant to the humpback bridge.

The Ginny’s zone will clean up on Gulf Drive from Pine Avenue south to Palmetto Avenue, and on the beach from Pine to the Palmetto access.

The Crosspointe zone will clean up all of Gulf Drive from Palmetto to White Avenue, and the beach from the Palmetto to White access.

For more information on NEMO or the cleanup, call Sato at 941-778-7200.
