It's that time of year again: time to clean up our 2-mile stretch of US 550. Ten Altrusans, one Altrusa spouse, and two ASTRA club members joined forces to pick up bottles, cans, tire tread, a huge number of cigarette butts (224 were picked up by just one person), cooler lids, buckets, cardboard boxes, construction materials, and other assorted trash and junk along the highway. We filled 28 large trash bags -- and that doesn't count the items which were too large to fit into a bag.
We were treated by Ray (of "Ray's Good Stuff") with several packages of delicious jerky from his store when our work was done. Lemonade and cookies rounded out our post-cleanup fare.
