Rockin' Roadside Results

Thanks to the determination of our volunteers despite the cold and rain, and the generosity of our community partners, our Rockin' Roadside Clean-up this past Saturday was a success.  Over 50 volunteers came out and removed truckloads of bags of garbage from along the roadside, making the community a much more attractive place.  You can read the newspaper coverage here.  The winner of the Michigan International Speedway tickets plus pit passes was Marilyn Deverell.  Marilyn, who has lived in Jackson for 30 years, never thought she'd win anything, so you can imagine how she felt when her name was drawn.  Congratulations to Marilyn!

Clean-up sponsors included:
Michigan International Speedway
PNC Bank
Pizza Hut
Jimmy Johns
Bob Evans
Sercombe Trucking
Northwest Refuse
Libra Industries
Blackman Township
K105.3 WKHM

Just one truckload of debris volunteers removed during the Rockin' Roadside Cleanup on 4/28.
These tires were also cleaned up from along the road.
Despite the weather, this outstanding group worked hard and made a difference !
