Rockland — The Education and Community Outreach Committee of the Good Tern Co-op, located at 750 Main St., is organizing a beach clean-up for Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m. to noon. October is National Co-op Month.

The clean-up is co-sponsored by the Apprenticeshop, Steel House, Rock City Coffee and Scrimshaw, with help from the City of Rockland. “We encourage anyone to join in — no experience necessary,” said Good Tern’s Education and Outreach Coordinator Elissa Bower, “It’s a fun way to uphold one of the six principles of all cooperatives: Concern for Community.”

Volunteers will meet in the parking lot of the Good Tern Co-op store and Bagel Shop, and are asked to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early. Masks must be worn, and volunteers should bring their own gloves; trash bags will be provided. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Anyone wishing to volunteer is invited to contact Elissa Bower at the Good Tern, at
