Spring is on its way and that means spring cleaning -- especially on our roadsides.
Livingston County Democrats will participate in the Michigan Department of Transportation's roadside cleanup program again this year. The spring cleanup date is set for Sunday, April 10, with a rain date of Sunday, April 17.
Volunteers meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of the Ironwood Golf Course, 6900 East Highland Road, Howell, to pick up litter along a two-mile stretch of M-59. Bring work gloves and wear sturdy shoes. The party will furnish safety vests and pick up sticks.
The winter's accumulation of litter can be daunting, but a drive-by inspection shows this spring's pile is not too bad. A good turnout of volunteers will make the work go faster.
And the best part is having breakfast together afterward.
This is a long-standing tradition for Livingston County Democrats. In 2010, the party marked its 25th year of cleaning up this portion of the county.
