Adopt-A-Road Returns This Saturday

Last summer, Hunt Valley Horsepower enrolled in Baltimore County’s Adopt-A-Road Program and we’ll be back for 2014!  The 3.6-mile long stretch of Thornton Mill Road – which is less than a mile to the north of our gathering location – is our road.  It is your road.  Its our task to keep Thornton Mill Road looking sharp and to positively impact the region’s tributaries as well as the Chesapeake Bay.

 The weather looks perfect for tomorrow so if 6 to 10 volunteers rise to the call, we’ll form our team at 10 AM to discuss rules, distribute materials and prep to depart for the short drive.  If you plan on volunteering, please wear (or bring) boots, long socks and long pants for ideal protection.  This clothing set isn’t mandatory [as can be seen in the photos below] but it allows for safer access to off-road items.  Gloves, safety vests, refuse grabbers, bags, road safety signs, sunscreen and water will be provided.  Be on the lookout for the sign-up form that will be set on the display table within our gathering area.

 Your volunteerism is highly appreciated.  For more information and even a video of our clean-up efforts, please review horsepowering.com/adoptaroadprogram.
