As a way of helping keep the community clean, as well as enjoying a little of the Alaskan Indian summer last week, members of the Soldotna Rotary Club formed a litter brigade for the mile of highway from the State Troopers building to Cook Inlet Academy. According to Bob Lamb, Soldotna Rotary Club President, it's part of the Adopt-a-Highway program sponsored by the Alaska Department of Transportation. "My understanding is that anyone that adopts a section of highway has the responsibility to clean it at least twice a year and register with the DOT," said Lamb.
President Elect Ed Krohn said that over 20 Rotarians showed up for the litter patrol that was organized by Steve Stenga. That was the largest group ever to turn out for a clean up since the club adopted the section of highway more than a decade ago. "With a group like this, that is really all out to do whatever they can to help the community, you can't help but have a good time. We might be helping somebody move, chop wood, hang drywall, or be selling roses for scholarships, it's just helping people and that's what Rotary is all about," said Krohn.
