"Thank You!" to the Boy Scouts that cleaned up
Mile 5, their section of N. Tongass Saturday morning. It
was nice to see the yellow bags along the road with all the trash
that they had collected. Looked pretty to many of us, like
the daffodils popping up in the spring!
"Thanks" also to the Society of American Foresters
for cleaning up Mile 6 of N. Tongass two weeks ago. I noticed
a former neighbor of mine, Henry Gibson working in that area
when they were cleaning it up. Since then I have seen
him walking around town on some of the nicer days picking
up trash. "Thanks Henry!"
To all of you that take the time to clean up trash from the city
streets, state and borough roads, your work is seen and appreciated.
For those of you that continue to litter, fail to cover your
loads allowing trash to blow around, your work is also observed
and not appreciated!
If you would like to sponsor the cleanup of a mile of the
state highway as the Foresters and the Scouts have done, contact
Nick Farstad at 225-2513.
There will be a cleanup of the North Tongass Highway and Revilla
road next month if the weather cooperates! I hope to see
