Bright and early on the morning of Sept. 25, Plano West Rotary Club member Glen Thornton led several club members in the clean-up alongside a stretch of Avenue K between Spring Creek Parkway and Parker Road in east Plano.
The service project is in cooperation with the City of Plano’s Adopt-a-Highway program. Our club has adopted this particular area to keep clean for the past four years, led by Glen, and we pick up roadside litter there every two months.
Our club’s nine volunteers, including Rotarians Glen, Michelle Thornton and Laura Johnson, spent a total of 20 hours collecting nine garbage bags full of litter. Six non-Rotarians, including five high school students, volunteered with our club. Their efforts directly impact one of Rotary’s Areas of Focus, protecting the environment.
The next roadside clean-up will take place Nov. 20. Volunteers will meet at Good Tree Academy parking lot at 8:00 a.m. Non-Rotarians are always welcome to serve with us! Sign up for this clean-up or other service projects here.
