The Verde Villages Property Owners Association met up early Saturday morning at the One in Christ Church near the Verde Valley Fire Station parking lot for their annual clean up of Route 260 in Cottonwood.
Mal, your group is the best of the best, always there 4x per year picking up after those that don't seem to understand the consequences of the actions.
Thanks for attending the Camp Verde "Work Session" this past Wednesday regarding the Camp Verde Town Council's discussion about getting themselves and their community taking on anti-litter efforts including Highway 260 ADOT Adopt-A-Highway groups.
I will share this Verde Independent story with many others including Governor Brewer, ADOT Director John Halikowski and Arizona Adopt-A-Highway Coordinator Patricia Powers-Zermeno. I have placed the email addresses in the cc for these three individuals just in case you have something that you may want to share with them.
WWII veteran Roy Buck and Beth Cady found a $1,000 savings bond during a litter event in 2010 as I remember it and got it back to the owner on the same day.
Roy Buck may be the very first Verde Valley litter-lifter and his story might be interesting to Verde Independent readers.
There are many ADOT Adopt-A-Highway groups in our area that very interesting stories to tell about their highway litter experiences.
