Benoit to Participate in North Shore Clean-Up, Activities Saturday

NORTH SHORE – Supervisor John J. Benoit will visit a community clean-up and fair in North Shore at 11 a.m. Saturday.

A collaborative effort between Riverside County Code Enforcement and Burrtec Industries, Inc., the clean-up allows North Shore residents to dispose of bulky trash items free of charge. The effort will run from 8 a.m. to noon with bins at the vacant lot behind Reyes Market (Avenue 70 & Vander Veer). Proof of residence is required.

Acceptable bulky items include tires – up to nine per trip, bundled tree trimmings, furniture, scrap metal, TVs, monitors and appliances. Hazardous material, batteries, pool chemicals, paint, transmission and brake fluids, herbicides, fertilizers, gasoline, tub and tile cleaners and bleach will not be accepted.

The North Shore Beach & Yacht Club Community Center (99-155 Sea View Drive, North Shore) will host a community fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The fair will feature face painting, arts and crafts and booths by at least 17 businesses and agencies. A free lunch will be provided and surveys distributed to residents to determine what types of programs residents would like offered at the community center.

Unique art inspired by the Salton Sea will remain on display at the Salton Sea History Museum inside the community center throughout April. The free exhibit features works by panoramic photographer Bill Leigh Brewer; new media artist Cristopher Cichocki; landscape artist Mary-Austin Klein; photographer and author of In Search of Eldorado: The Salton Sea Christopher Landis; American realist painter Deborah Martin; photographer of Salt Dreams Joan Myers; plein-air painters Andrew Dickson, Joe Forkan and Eric Merrell and photographer and author of Greetings From the Salton Sea, Kim Stringfellow.

Designed by renowned architect Albert Frey, the 53-year-old North Shore Yacht Club was host to many Hollywood celebrities who kept boats and entertained at the club during the Salton Sea’s heyday. Last year marked the completion of $3.5 million in renovations to the 6,500-square-foot structure, designated as a Riverside County Historic Landmark. The renovated building is home to the Salton Sea Museum, meetings of the North Shore Community Council and Desert Recreation District programs.
