Lucasville Masons Help With Litter Pick Up
Chillicothe – The Ohio Department of Transportation is pleased to recognize members of the Lucasville Masonic Lodge No. 465 for their efforts with District 9’s Adopt-A-Highway program.
“We wish to applaud the Lucasville Masons on their commitment to the Adopt-A-Highway program and all their efforts to help our county crews maintain a clean highway system,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart.
In their second outing this year, Neal Allen, Claude Duckworth, Denny Edwards, Dennis Evans, John Kennedy, Paul Kennedy, Howard Morgan, Chris Spencer and Jason Throckmorton collected 13 bags of litter along U.S. Route 23 in Scioto County on June 20.
Members of the Adopt-A-Highway program since 1994, the Lucasville Masonic Lodge was awarded the Gold Star designation in the spring of 2005 for its long-standing participation in the program.
For those groups participating in the Adopt-A-Highway program, ODOT will provide volunteers with trash bags and safety vests at no cost, and the department will post a sign inscribed with the group's name within the adopted section of highway.
Any group interested in becoming part of the Adopt-A-Highway program in Scioto County should contact ODOT's highway maintenance facility by calling (740) 259-2071.
