When I left home last Saturday morning to meet a group of fellow Rotarians in Springfield it was 45° according to the exterior thermometer on my car. If there was any good news it was that there was no significant amount of wind. It was the first of our cleanups for 2012
As you can see we participate in the Virginia Department of Transportation's "Adopt A Highway" program. We are regularly assigned the area of Rolling Road from Old Keene Mill Road south to the Fairfax County Parkway. That section of roadway is one of the busiest in the Springfield area.
The first order of business was to meet in the Einstein Brothers Bagel Bakery parking lot (this will play a major role later) and receive our stylish orange vests and trash bags. We "hit the road" in two or three person co-ed teams to different sections of Rolling Road.
Arthur was unable to accompany me in his usual role as photographer so I am using the same photos we took at our last cleanup of 2011. Obviously, he snapped this one of me for our own use.
The filled bags are left at curbside for subsequent pickup by VDOT.
Our work is complete and we have returned to Einstein Brothers Bagel Bakery to warm up and enjoy fellowship - after community service it is one of the important benefits of being a Rotarian anywhere in the world.
