Four Decades, Three Generations and Twenty-seven Neighbors Keeping their Community Clean
If you’ve driven down Highway 33 north of Hawley, you might notice folks out walking and riding bike along the wide shoulder, and during track season, the Nugget track team likes to go out there and run. You might notice folks riding horses in the ditches and crops starting to sprout in the fields. It’s a beautiful countryside out there, and the neighborhood works hard to keep it that way.
Every spring, for the last forty years, the close knit neighborhood along Highway 33 comes together and cleans ditches. The Adopt a Highway program wasn’t even established yet, when this local community claimed that stretch of highway.
