Great American Clean-Up

As part of our adopt-a-road project,
we periodically tidy up a local county road.
It's a program that can be found in most states.
Throughout the early spring season,
various cities host what's known as
The Great American Clean-Up.

If you've ever thought of trying to find a
worthwhile volunteer activity
for your family, club, place of worship
or other group association,
I hope you'll consider this one.
You can make a difference with very little time invested.

In preparation for our next clean-up,
the office that supplies us with garbage bags,
gloves and even handled pickers
shared with us loads of tickseed,
otherwise known as coreopsis.

If you'd like some, just contact me here

  1. Thanks for spreading the word.
    It doesn't take much effort to make a difference. Hubby and I always take a bag along on our walks. We try to take a different route all the time. I have to admit, it's maddening when idiots dump trash on a section we just picked up. I often think ALL high-school kids should serve a mandatory time picking up the roads--since it seems to mainly come from them anyways. Maybe if they picked it up, they'd think twice. Hmmmmmm.

  2. That is such a wonderful thing to be doing! We will be looking into it!

  3. Sue-Thanks to you and hubby for doing your part!

    Clint Baker-Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
