Altrusa/ASTRA Volunteers Clean Up

ASTRA members Tessa Sullivan, Mary Katherine Hooley, and Meagan Lynch (ASTRA President) help clean up US Highway 550

A group of 21 members and friends of Altrusa and its youth affiliate, ASTRA, picked up an assortment of cans, bottles, hubcaps, cardboard, auto parts, and even a stray one dollar bill along US 550 between Montrose and Colona on Saturday, October 6.

We cleaned up from Mile Marker 121 to 123, and even a bit beyond! The volunteers met in front of the Jerky store, donned fashionable orange vests, and set out with huge orange garbage bags. We filled a total of 42 large bags with roadside trash.

Watch for a repeat of this event next Spring. We hope you'll join us!

Susan Woody was the pleased winner of the drawing for a grabber tool for picking up trash.

Diane Winger demonstrates that picking up trash can be fun.
