Lucasville Masons Pitch In With Litter Pick Up
Chillicothe - As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program, the Lucasville Masons have pitched in once again to assist the department with litter pick up in Scioto County.
On August 23, Jhan Aeh, Nelson Bellar, Bill Gundlah, Mark Jenkins, John Kennedy, Paul Kennedy, Curt Thacker and David Young of Masonic Lodge No. 465 collected 14 bags of litter along a two-mile section of U.S. Route 23.
“Once again, the Lucasville Masons have been active in the Adopt-A-Highway program, which is important to help our county crews maintain a clean, safe highway system,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart. “As with all our volunteer groups, we appreciate their assistance and their efforts to promote roadway beautification."
The Lucasville Masons joined the Adopt-A-Highway program in 1994; the organization was awarded the Gold Star designation in the spring of 2005 for its longstanding 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.
