April 2019 Adopt-A-Road Cleanup

On April 17th, 2019, about a dozen or so Chapter Ikes showed up early before the monthly dinner meeting to help pull trash out of the roadside ditches alongside Kings Fork Road, and Providence Road, all the way from the community house to Rt 460, to fulfill our semi-annual commitment with the city of Suffolk and the Keep Virginia Beautiful-Adopt-A-Road program.

To the left you see Chapter Ike Jonathan Echols helping post “cleanup crew working” signs at either end of Kings Fork Road to help protect our volunteers from any distracted drivers.  And to the right, you can see that we collected about a dozen trash bags of debris consisting of the usual assortment of glass and plastic bottles, aluminum cans, waste plastic, cigarette and cigar butts, and some discarded auto parts.

Special thanks to Chapter Ike Dana Hale for his volunteer efforts in helping Danny Stephenson, Adopt-a-Road Chair, with obtaining trash bags, gloves, pickers, safety vests, and signs from Wayne Jones of Suffolk Litter Control.
