Rotarians at Work, Cleaning Up
"Business Is Picking Up" - A Rotary at Work Day - May 14, 2018
Rotarians from Carson City met at a local acreage just adjacent to the freeway entrance off Freeway 580 South, to tackle years of accumulated litter and trash, stuck in brush and along the fence lines. The privately-owned property hadn't been cleaned up in years, even though it is generally the first impression people see when they turn off the freeway at Highway 50 and go downtown.
With teamwork and help from the crew at the city's parks department, we managed to bag up and haul away 32 really big plastic bags of debris.
After the work was over, in Rotarian style, we enjoyed a barbecue lunch, listened to some live music provided by a local guitarist, and drank a couple of cold beers.
While the fences do trap some blowing trash from the neighborhood, the property is still in pretty good shape after almost a year and a half.
