Team SC Sunrise Highway Adopters completed our 2014 commitment with the 4th clean-up of the year.  Today's 18 bags collected brings the total for the year to 85 huge bags of trash!

Many thanks to this quarter's outstanding team: Ross McClenahan, Brian and Dorothy Parselle, Karen Gosling, Mark Junod, Jim Cumming and the Honorable Ari Symons.  We had a blast working and hanging together as "Fellows, not Felons".

The next cleanup will be in February 2015.  Contact me if you want to get in on the fun!!!
