The Adopt-a-Highway cleanup on Saturday, April 30 was a huge success. Our 17 volunteers worked for hours in the effort and collected 30 bags of trash on the Rt. 45/480 Bypass, Morgan’s Grove Road and Gardners Lane. This effort was done safely thanks to Reserve officers James Hoffman and Robert Juarez of the Sheriff’s Department who patrolled alongside the volunteers to make motorists aware of our presence on the roadsides.
