Highway Helpers

clean upWhat a better way than to spend the afternoon by being of service and helping support the C dot Highway cleanup. The weather was nice, the orange vests were out, and the smell of a clean stretch of highway was in the air. This was Jaywalker lodge’s first quarterly highway cleanup of the year; it consists of a two mile stretch along Highway 133 outside of Carbondale heading towards Redstone. The newly constructed Crystal River bike path on Hwy 133 is one of the major focuses of the cleanup. The quarterly cleanup is just one of the many volunteer opportunities in which the Lodge men give back to the community. What a great way to get out into the fresh mountain air and make a difference while taking in some great scenery. The men tend to enjoy the time being outside, doing something different, and you never know what you are going to find. There is a deeper meaning when you lose yourself in volunteer work. There is an educational process to the whole cleanup that the men tend to take away when beautifying a local highway. As the men walk along, there are good conversations, good laughs, and always a clean highway at the end of the day.
