THE Northern Mariana Islands Council of the Tau Gamma Phi Triskelion Grand Fraternity conducted a beach cleanup on Sunday, its chairman Aired Murillo said.

About 20 members participated in the activity which started at 7 a.m. and was completed at 10 a.m. as part of the group’s  commitment to serve the community, he added.

They filled up 15 trash bags as they cleaned up the beach area from the Garapan Public Market to the Quartermaster intersection,  Murillo said.

 “We chose the day after the Liberation Day festivities because we expected that there could be trash left behind in that area,” he added.

He thanked the Tau Gamma Phi members for their involvement in the campaign to preserve the environment.

“I salute all our members who joined us in this cleanup project. I am very thankful for all the help and constant support that they give to the council,” Murillo said.

The United Filipino Organization led by its president Mar Masilungan  lauded the efforts of Tau Gamma Phi.

Masilungan said Division of Parks and Recreation Director Victor Deleon Guerrero Jr. also  expressed his appreciation for the group’s cleanup activity.

Among the Tau Gamma Phi members who participated in the cleanup were vice chairman Mark Barahan, master keeper of the scroll Adam Centeno, master keeper of the chest Mike Gil Daynos, and master wielder of the whip Reden Zamora.

Murillo said their next project is to provide assistance to the members of Tau Gamma Sigma, the Triskelion’s Grand Sorority, who have been furloughed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
