Tires, bags and bags of trash, boat parts and other debris was collected from the park, beach and surrounding areas. Family and friends from the Dataw Island Garden Club, The JROTC from Wade Hampton High School, AMCC at Tri-Command, The Marine Corp Band, Beaufort High School Interact Club, Lands End Kayak Tours, and Friends of Hunting Island along with many others were treated to lunch after their hard work,  sponsored by the Rotary Club of the Low Country.
