Unemployed veterans recruited for beach, park cleanup

Unemployed veterans are being recruited for more than three dozen short-term positions preparing Rhode Island beaches and parks for the season. Governor Lincoln Chafee said the state Department of Labor and Training is working with the RI Temps staffing agency in Warwick to recruit veterans. The full-time work assignments moving beach sand, removing debris, picking up trash, installing snow fencing, and raking campground sites are expected to run from early March to mid-April. Work sites approved so far include Roger Wheeler State Beach, East Matunuck State Beach, and the Charlestown Breachway in Narragansett; East Bay State Beach and Burlingame State Campground in Charlestown; and Misquamicut State Beach in Westerly.
