After a successful clean-up Ponquogue Point in Hampton Bays last weekend, life-long resident and artist Carolyn Munaco Haines is organizing a second clean-up — this time at 1 p.m. on Sunday at the Ed Warner Marine Park (aka the south-side of the Ponquogue Bridge by the Gazebo).
Haines, said the clean-up at Ponquogue Point, held on Friday and Sunday last week, brought out a number of helpers, who filled numerous trash bags that the Southampton Parks Department picked up on Monday.
Haines organized the effort after walking through the area to find inspiration for her art, instead, however, she founds piles of trash left by Superstorm Sandy.
Haines said she is planning to organize additional clean-ups in an effort to clean up Hampton Bays.
Haines is asking anyone willing to participate to join her on Sunday and to also bring bags and pitch forks and wear good sturdy protective shoes, gloves, and tick spray.
The clean up will start with volunteers working through the marsh, heading east towards the inlet.
