On Jan. 29 Plano West Rotary Club (PWRC) members and volunteers spent a Saturday afternoon working together to clean up litter in the area alongside Avenue K. This stretch of roadside between Spring Creek Parkway and Parker Road in Plano has been adopted by our club for the past four years through the City’s Adopt-a-Highway program.
Club member and past-president Glen Thornton leads the bimonthly efforts, and this month he joined nine others including PWRC members Michelle Thornton, Laura Johnson, Joy Hinkelman and John Stafford, along with a handful of non-Rotary volunteers.
Altogether 20 volunteer hours were served on this day, contributing directly toward Rotary’s focus on protecting the environment, and helping keep Plano the City of Excellence.
Our club has several volunteer opportunities coming up in the next few weeks, including distributing boxed meals with Plano ISD, delivering furniture to families in financial need, working an adoption fair, selling funnel cakes at the Texas Forever Fest and more. As always, non-Rotarians are welcome to serve with us! Find an opportunity that fits your passion here.
