Adopt-a-Highway Clean Up

Saturday's morning clean up of the roadside between Exits 8 and 10 of the I-15 was a quick clean up this time.  A special thank you to the Washington County Sheriff's office Explorers Post #1925, for their support. Oscar and the 16 young ladies and men did a great job helping us. This time it only took us 2 hours and 20 minutes to clean up the freeway. There were 28 Marines, wives and Explorers.  Dennis served picnic in the park for lunch, ending the day on high note!
