A day ahead of near hurricane force winds and rain invading Sayulita, a town clean-up was held last Friday, June 19th, by JXMP, just in time to save over **80 bags of garbage** from flowing into our ocean. As one Sayulita local shared, it was a fun morning and a great turnout, with many parts of the community represented:

"Trust me when I tell you that you have NOT lived until you have spent the morning doing a town clean-up with 16 teenaged girls dressed in their **pinkest** school finery…

ME: Ok, who wants to come with me and clean Revolucion?

16 GIRLS: (Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

ME: Ok, let’s head over to the truck. You guys get in the back.

16 GIRLS: Truck???? (Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

ME: Ok, Here’s some surgical gloves to cover your hands while you pick up trash.

16 GIRLS: Gloves!!!! (Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

ME: Ok, let’s learn some cheers so we can use them as we clean.

16 GIRLS: CHEERS???? (Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

ME: J—X—M—P : Juntos Por Mi Pueblo!

16 GIRLS: J—X—M—P : Juntos Por Mi Pueblo! (Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

ME: Mi pueblo, mi vida! 

16 GIRLS: Mi pueblo, mi vida, YO AMO SAYULITA! (Improvised on the spot!)

ME: Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

The girls on the Ave. Revolucion crew were just 16 of the **over 75 mostly Mexican** turnout of both Secundaria and CVIS students, various teachers, parents of students, and others from our lovely community who then headed over to do the Beach, the River, the Punta de Mita Hwy and Revolucion; PLUS, Libertad, a bit of lower Pelicanos, some of Tamarindo and also the little field next to Manuel Plascencia that someone keeps dumping their diaper-filled garbage into… (It's always so much easier to get more areas done with SO many hands helping!)

Supersonic kudos to the **mostly-Mexican roundtable of beautiful men and women** who organized this day as a follow-up to both Semana Santa and a recent presentation that they gave to the town about key issues that we ALL need to get together on going forward. The group used pieces of a Powerpoint Plan that was the culmination of the thoughts and musings voiced by many concerned Mexicans, non-residents and various environmental and other groups in town over the past 2 years, and they obviously had an impact!
We felt and hoped that something was changing in this town as a result of everyone's work together on Semana Santa – this feels like it could be the beginning of something BIG…

Congratulations everybody, and stay tuned for more events and forums!

Mi pueblo, mi vida, YO AMO SAYULITA! (Scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)" ;-)

Last week's clean-up was followed this week, by a successful two-day effort to clear a blocked culvert on the way into town that was holding stagnant water (and possibly Dengue-carrying mosquito larvae) after our first series of rainy-season storms.
