THE Lions Clubs International District 204, Region 2 on Saturday cleaned up Sugar Dock beach.

Aside from Lions and Leos, other community members participated in the beach cleanup that started at 6 a.m., project chairman Mario Mayuga said.

He said District 204-Region 2, which is composed of seven Lions Clubs on Saipan, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Governor’s Council of Economic Advisers as part of the private-public partnership in maintaining and improving the Sugar Dock beach area, including building infrastructure and amenities, for five years.

Region 2 chairman Al Cabael said he knows “it is a huge challenge maintaining a public area, but as long as we are all in this together, we can achieve it for the betterment of this beautiful island.”

Mayuga said during Saturday’s beach cleanup, “we did brush cutting, debris, and trash pickup, hauling and transferring to Solid Waste Management 2,960 pounds of municipal solid waste.” 

Community volunteer Max Aguon assisted in disposing of the trash.

“We are here to maintain the location so beachgoers can enjoy  every time they come here,” Mayuga said.

Region 2 comprises the Saipan Fil-American Lions Club, the Saipan Unity Lions Club, the Saipan Marianas Lions Club, the Saipan Alliance Lions Club, the Saipan Natibu Lions Club, the Saipan Centennial Lions Club, and the Saipan Pacific Lions Club.

Mayuga would like to thank those who helped provide resources and services to the cleanup team.

These included the Saipan Mayor’s Office, Max Aguon, Happy Market, Triple J Wholesale, and Marianas Landscape Services, “and to all the others who joined — Lions members and the non-Lion volunteers,” Mayuga said.

“If you have the passion for serving the community, the Lions Club is for you,” he added. “If you are interested you may call  Region 2 chairman Al Cabael at 483-4663, zone chair Eden Mercado at 788-2416, zone chair Arceli Lizama at 287-6758, or secretary Tess Marquez at 483-6524.”
