LWA Adopt-a-Highway


Thanks to LWA members Dave Drummer, Donalee Frary, Raine Fussner Donna Knight, Clyde Odom and Carl Zvanut who joined me for the club's first time participation in PennDOT's Adopt-a-Highway program.  We divided into two teams and spent two hours on Thursday morning picking up litter and trash along a two mile section of Cetronia Rd.  Despite the competitive nature of most club members, we did NOT weigh the trash to determine which team collected the most.  There was, however, some discussion about which team deserved the "A Team' designation.  PennDOT will be erecting a sign in recognition of our continuing efforts to keep this roadway clean.  Watch for an announcement on Meetup for the Fall event.  Jack Helffrich
