HIGHWAY CLEANUP
Sept 21, 2019
We pick up trash along M-43 for 2 miles west of the M-40 intersection. Meet at the carpool lot at the intersection at 9 am. Plan to watch a short safety video before heading out. If it’s cloudy and a bit drizzly, we’ll still pick up trash, but if it’s raining or there are thunderstorms heading our way, we’ll postpone. Please wear appropriate clothing (long sleeves and long pants to protect against sun, bugs & weeds, gloves, and good footwear such as hiking boots); bring water and a 5-gallon bucket if you wish. Club provides bags and “grabbers”. More details via forum as dates approach.
