Barbara Stillman, owner of the Atlantic Beach Resort, praised the volunteer effort as she watched from the front of her office building.
Last week volunteers showed up at her
business to remove sand, stones and debris that filled her
indoor swimming pool.
"Without the volunteers this beach would be a mess, more of a mess," she
"Appreciative isn't the word."
As owner of one of the few year-round businesses in Misquamicut, Stillman said she's losing as much as $6,000 a week by not being able to rent her time-share properties.
Like others, she
still needs electrical and infrastructure work done but is waiting for state inspections and permits.
