Adopt a Road and keep Ashcroft clean

Author challenges other groups to Adopt a Road, just as the Ashcroft T.O.P.S. Club did recently.

Dear Editor

The Ashcroft T.O.P.S. Club applied for the “Adopt a Road” program and performed the first day of picking up garbage along the route requested.  That’s right – this early in the program a stretch of road can actually be requested.  Part of the requirements of the program is to perform this task three times a year, and after the first time, the stretch of road is identified with the group’s name. All materials required, such as Men Working signs, safety vests and garbage bags, are supplied through Public Works which also pick up the full bags.

I’m not aware of any other groups applying for the program, but I’d like to challenge other clubs, church groups, small businesses, etc. to help clean up our town. As I walk along the different routes in and around town, some are very bad. Isn’t it time we showed some pride in “Historic Ashcroft” and gave a little time to cleaning up our town?

Applications are available at the Village Office, and it’s only three times a year. Let’s do it!
