On December 4th over thirty Long Beach Surfrider volunteers gathered to celebrate their efforts to make their community a better place. Emiko Innes, Chairperson of the Chapter welcomed everyone with a slide show of the years activities and an inspirational clip from the recent TED conference which puncuated the importance of ‘movements’. Nancy Hastings, Southern California Field Organizer for the Surfrider Global said a few words of thanks after which awards were given, stories were shared and great food was enjoyed.
Huge thanks to The Local Spot at Pacific Coast Highway and Loynes for hosting the event.  They are a local family with a local eatery and it was a perfect example of the community coming together for a common cause….through local efforts great global movements are born.   Please consider The Local Spot as your first stop for great food and don’t forget to tell them that Surfrider sent ya!
