Just got an e-mail from the City of Gig Harbor that says Mayor Chuck Hunter will lead a cleanup party Thursday at Jerisich Dock.

Spokeswoman Laureen Lund writes:

Jerisich doesn’t necessarily have a "history" but is definitely a very popular and well used dock and park so of course generates trash. At low tide you can see things stuck to the bottom that just are not supposed to be there!

This is Hunter’s first cleanup party. He got the idea after noticing trash on the beach while standing on the dock, Laureen said.

The cleanup takes place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The city is encouraging residents to attend and help.
