This year we will kick off our clubs 26th year of participation in the Adopt-a-Highway program on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22. This will be our first Saturday cleanup in a while. This will allow those that normally have plans on Sunday mornings to join us. We need a few club members to volunteer some time to help clean up a section of I-5, located approximately 11 miles north of Seattle. This is a great community volunteer opportunity and a chance to hang out with Corvette people for a few hours.
We will need 10 volunteers which will include 2 drivers and 8 trash pickers. The drivers will need to bring their own vehicles that they are willing to use to haul volunteers and bagged trash. The vehicles must be large enough to haul 4 volunteers and must have a hitch for our safety sign. Big four door trucks and vans work great. No corvettes this time. The drivers stay in their vehicles, while the trash pickers do their job.
We will meet at 9:00am at the Metro Transit Bus Base Visitors Parking Lot, near the 175th St. NE Exit from I-5. We provide the hard hats, safety vests, trash picker tools and bags. You will need sturdy shoes, gloves, protective clothing, and a great attitude. We will spend a couple hours cleaning up about a 1 mile long section of the southbound shoulder of I-5, then we may meet up for lunch afterwards. Corvettes can come to lunch!
