Plano Cleanup

By Craig L. Robinson, Texas Knight Reporter

Vol. 4, 2023 - 2024


Plano's Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) Program provides local homeowner associations, businesses, civic organizations, churches and schools the opportunity to make an impact on the cleanliness and appearance of our community. By accepting the responsibility and leadership of the assigned roadway, the group is not only increasing awareness of litter issues and the impact of beautification efforts but also demonstrating a positive behavior of local pride and ownership of Plano.

Council 7850 has been among the most senior participants in the Adopt-A-Highway Program for the City of Plano since its inception. Council members volunteer their time on a designated Saturday morning from 7:00am to 9:00am on a bimonthly basis. The crew meets in the south parking lot of the Faith Formation Center (FFC) to get outfitted with reflective vests, gloves, a trash stick and trash bag before moving out to their assigned sections.

The crew is not sent out on an empty stomach. Waiting for them when they arrive is coffee, fruit juice, water and an assortment of donuts to provide comfort food for nourishment on their quest for trash! This month the event occurred on December 2nd.

Participating (l-r) are: Richard Fleming, Tom Juneau, Jim Tucker, Jason Volcansek, Dennis Healy, Alex Mauricio, Joe Counter and Mike Becker.The picture was taken by Craig Robinson.
