The San Pedro Town Council launched the "Don't Mess Up San Mateo" Clean Up Campaign 2014 on Tuesday, March 11, with an opening ceremony held at the entrance of the San Mateo Area.
At the ceremony the invocation was delivered by Mr. Dave Nisbet and the welcome address by Mayor Daniel Guerrero. Special remarks were delivered by Mr. Bill Ford and by Mr. Chris Bonnet from Action Twenty 24 and lastly the closing remarks by councilor Kenrick Brackett.
Action Twenty 24 is a team of volunteers who organize camps and various activities for communities that are under developed or simply need a helping hand. A team of 20 volunteers are in San Pedro at the moment.
On this trip, as part of the Clean Up campaign, the Action Twenty 24 team brought with them 500 pairs of anti-microbial shoes from "Millions from One" (an organization in the USA). These shoes prohibit the growth of fungi in the shoes and feet. They were distributed at Holy Cross Anglican School, New Horizon SDA School and Brighter Tomorrow Pre-School.
With the assistance of the neighborhood, the San Pedro Town Council, hopes that residents in the area and round the island continue practicing keeping the community clean.
