Drilling home a message with Hands Across the Sand events in North Pinellas

“Hands Across the Sand" will occur Saturday at more than 200 locations in Florida and more than 700 spots across the world.

North Pinellas communities will be right in the middle of the action.

The environmental movement has gained extra attention in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that continues to plague the Gulf of Mexico and shores in the northern gulf.

Participants are asked to meet at the beach at 11 a.m. Saturday and link hands at noon for 15 minutes. Walk, bike, take public transportation or carpool if possible. Participants are encouraged to wear black or red, white and blue.

The north Pinellas locations include Belleair Beach, Clearwater Beach, Crystal Beach, Dunedin Causeway beach and Honeymoon Island, and Fred Howard Park beach in Tarpon Springs.

The Dunedin Causeway festivities will feature a water blessing, poetry readings focusing on the oil spill, "art therapy," presentations on renewable energy, and music. It is part of the anniversary celebration of Oak Trail Books/The Witch's Brew, 1219 Florida Ave., Palm Harbor.

In Clearwater Beach, meet at Clearwater's North Beach between Frenchy's and Palm Pavilion Grill & Bar.

Visit or contact Cathy Harrelson at (727) 415-8805 or for info.
