Madeira Beach, Florida (August 7, 2018) – Hubbard’s Marina is excited to support the Hands Across The Water event this Sunday. This peaceful and family friendly event is designed to support Florida water and wildlife initiatives. This event was organized by volunteers in response to the inaction of lawmakers to the damage being done by the water released from Lake Okeechobee. It is now a state wide demonstration to draw attention to all fishery, water and wildlife initiatives.
At 10AM, John’s Pass demonstrators will be joining thousands of state-wide activists when they link hands.
Event planners have been rallying support via Facebook and by word of mouth; asking for residents and tourists alike to peacefully come together to show support for the local fishery and environment. By locking hands, they plan to demonstrate that they do not, and will not, stand by while our beautiful beaches, wildlife, homes and livelihoods continuously being impacted by the water released from Lake Okeechobee.
This is a family event, being held by volunteers along the coasts and is not being sponsored by any organization. There will be no money or donations collected.
Participants are being asked to:
1. Wear a blue/aqua colored shirt;
2. Bring water, snacks and sunscreen;
3. Bring signs, banners, etc. but DO NOT leave trash behind on the beach or meeting area
4. Understand that they want our beaches back and to save marine life.
