On February 16, we had a successful day doing our adopted road clean-up on Sheppard Drive, (which was rescheduled due to weather.) A beautiful winter’s day it was. Some of us were even in T-shirts.
It is a funny feeling when planning this type of event. On the one hand, you don’t, of course, want people to litter, but on the other hand you want bragging rights.
We collected around ten bags of trash, three car tires, one car battery and various car and truck parts. (There is a joke in there somewhere.)
We split into two groups, I went with the up-the-hill group and what a hill it is. We joke that the hill is why this road was never adopted and it is probably true.
This is our second clean-up on this road and this time we found some old steel beer cans from long ago, how did we miss them the first go round? I found a large chrome license plate holder with lights on it, and the plate had “Don & Irene” on it, (I think.)
This was a very enjoyable day spent with great people and we accomplished a good deed in the process.
