On Saturday, May 21, there were just six people to clean the main roads in the Acres. Elyse and Charlie Roller, Joe DeMarco, Pat and Ron Levine and Pam Brewer did all they could to clean AuSable Drive of winter’s accumulated litter. It really is too bad that so few people showed up. It is, of course, also too bad that there are so many people who throw litter. While our Adopt A Road has had success attracting volunteers, it has been mostly for the less travelled roads, the lake area and silver trail. Most of Sawmill Dr. has been adopted as well. We need some people to adopt sections of AuSable Drive and regularly pick up the litter. We will have another roadside cleanup on Saturday, August 20, 2016. If we cannot get enough help, it will be something the board will no longer schedule and conduct. With so many people here, we should be able to get 20-30 people to give an hour or two of their time twice a year. The board can’t do it all. Please consider adopting a section of AuSable Drive, especially from the lake to AuSable Forks. If you are willing, simply send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be yours. Thank you.
