Clean-up kids

Last Friday morning, I decided to take a different route back to my residence, going from Vandergrift through East Vandergrift to Apollo.

While driving through East Vandergrift, I noticed 10 to 12 teenagers walking along the side of the road wearing red vests. I wondered where they were going and what they were doing.

When I reached the edge of East Vandergrift, to my surprise and delight I noticed bags of trash and vehicle tires piled at various locations along the road.

Those teenagers had spent the morning cleaning the berms along Sheridan Road.

Unfortunately, I do not know the group or project they represented, but I want to thank and commend them for their service to the community.

We need more of those types of activities.

In fact, last year I tried to get a similar project going for Red Onion Hill Road in Oklahoma, which is in dire need of attention.

But I was met with roadblocks and brush-offs from various government agencies.

Again, thanks to the unknown youth group for the work it did and the positive impact it made in the community.
