I have spent many a happy day cleaning up these islands, despite the heat, mosquitoes, and threat of rain, and I'm glad to see that Shake-a-Leg is now continuing the project. In fact, I initiated this work with them. However, the idea that volunteers should have to pay to do this does not sit well with me.
