Three cheers for the dog walkers at the beach

To the editor:

I saw three ladies on July 5 on the beach with their dogs. They are year-round walkers who care greatly for Gooches Beach in Kennebunk.

This morning they had walked a bit more than half of the beach and picked up 10 store bags full of trash left over from the July Fourth festivities.

They also found towels and sweatshirts that were given to the Animal Welfare Society. They received nothing for doing this.

I thank and congratulate them for their effort. It is a shame that people are such slobs that beach regulars must pick up after them. Shows very little respect or concern for this beautiful beach or those who use it.
