Huge thanks to all the dedicated volunteers who showed up for the Adopt-A-Hwy clean up! And a big shout out to A&W who provided four helpers. We collected 27 bags of litter from the Exit 32 interchange, plus assorted tire parts, signage, and a large animal “feed bag”. This would not happen without everyone’s collective efforts. We’ll look forward to doing it again in the fall.
