The Second Adopt-A-Highway Event on Sept. 18 at 7am went just as well as the first. We met on the corner of Vernon St. and Highway 29 in Llano, TX . In two short hours we had cleaned up 3 miles of highway and filled 15 large bags with trash. By the time the weather was getting a little warm, we were done!
There is an ever increasing amount of trash and plastic in particular covering our Texas roadsides and highways. The Llano County Democratic Club knew they had to get involved and do what we could to help clean up our environment while at the same time protecting the livestock and livelihood of our Texas Farmers and Ranchers.
We chose to adopt a stretch of Highway 29 beginning at Vernon Street in Llano, Texas and heading east for three miles. We will meet to clean up this area once a quarter.
