2018 Fall Adopt-A-Highway
Greetings fellow Club members.
Fourteen volunteers gathered in the Dareo’s Pizza parking lot just before 9:30 am
Saturday September 29 th . The names of those volunteers are Brad Brown, Bruce
Boyd, Kathy & Dusty Miller, Roger Coon, Stephen Johnson, Denise & Ron Griebel,
Warren Huber, Cheryl & Randy Nielsen, Katherine & Jeff Watkins, and Brad Haase.
We departed for our adopted section of SD Hwy 115 at 9:30. Four groups, armed
with orange D.O.T. approved garbage bags, descended on four miles of ditch.
Everyone walked one mile and picked up every single piece of trash in those
ditches. Every litter bit counts you know!
With trash safely secured in my pickup, and no volunteers left behind in the
ditches, our group arrived back at Dareo’s at 11:00. The staff at Dareo’s had our
table waiting and began producing food and drink as we took our seats. The best
jokes and stories I have ever heard were told during that lunch. At noon we
adjourned and went forth to enjoy the rest of our day. Our Club truly makes the
Adopt-a-Highway program all about beautiful people doing beautiful things
So another year of Adopt-a-Highway is in the books. Counting both Spring & Fall
cleaning, twenty nine different members helped out. Five members made both
events. Thanks to all that keep our commitment to reducing ugly and dangerous
highway litter and keep our roads clean and safe.
