Gulfport Boulevard is next in line to get special spruce up

GULFPORT — They cleaned up the beach and then they cleaned up 49th Street.

Now, it's time to make Gulfport Boulevard shine.

The Gulfport Neighbors group will pick up trash and litter between 49th and 59th streets Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

Volunteers are asked to meet in the Walgreens parking lot, 5701 Gulfport Blvd. S.

The group will provide trash bags and water. Volunteers should bring their own gloves and sunscreen.

More than 100 people helped in the first two cleanups. Anyone wanting to help this time is asked to go to and search for Gulfport Neighbors/Gulfport Blvd Litter Cleanup to sign up.

After the cleanup, there will be a luncheon meeting at the Habana Café, 5402 Gulfport Blvd. S.

A Cuban buffet with Spanish salad, roasted pork, black beans and rice, plantains, Cuban bread with a choice of iced tea or soda will be served for $10.

Luncheon space is limited, so volunteers are asked to RSVP as soon as possible.
