    MOC adopt a Highway Litter pickup Sept 25th SW Region Hartford Area

    We will be meeting at 7:00 AM on Sept 25th at the Panel Room Restaurant. There will be a short Safety meeting (required by the state) and I will hand out needed materials. We can plan to eat breakfast/brunch at the Panel Room and then we will load up and head over to the I94 and get to work. Remember this is a heavily traveled stretch of road and a great way to visibly get the word out!

    As this was just cleaned in July it will be pretty easy!! And many hands make light work and a short job of it!!

    I would recommend a pair of gloves and some sort of tool to pickup litter with! Bags will be provided.

    You also might want bug spray and sunblock!!

    Post in this thread or the one on OCDO or MGO if you can do this so that the Events Coordinator can get an accurate count thanks!!

    Added to my calendar. Hopefully we have more people who will walk the walk this time, not just talk the talk.

    Get a good nights sleep. Come on out rested and ready for an awesome breakfast at the Panel Room! And bring a sweater or jacket as it will start out cool about 51. Remember we are meeting at 7:00 AM sunrise is at 7:30 and we will likely head over to the cleanup site about 7:45 or so. High temp for the day is forecast-ed as 60 so still pretty cool! Which will be awesome compared to 96 at the last event!!!

    Well even though we started with only three... we got her done in fairly decent time... took from 8:00 AM till around 1:00 PM

    Jvanhorn, anetsprungen and myself started the event and Hopnpop and Mosnar87 both showed up right after they got out of work about 12:00 or so... the got there in time to help us clean the final interchange one of the harder sections.

    I would like to thank Jvanhorn a MGO member that OCes from my area for the use of his truck and his willingness to help out with this event.

    Anetsprungen you are an inspiration walking over 3.5 miles hauling trash with the health challenges you face every day!! Thank you!

    Hopnpop and Mosnar87 I know you guys already put in a full day so a huge thank you for coming out as your help at the end when the rest of us were starting to drag was a great help!!

    And with that here is the crew from left to right Hopnpop, Mosnar87, Anetsprungen,Jvanhorn, and Autosurgeon





    Also a few pics of a couple of the guys finding treasures.
