Special to The Monitor
SEAGOVILLE–In the early morning sun Feb. 22, community residents, and the volunteers and staff of the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center cleaned a two mile section of FM 1389 South leading to the City of Combine.
The center’s third annual highway cleanup had 21 participants making up four teams.
Each team tackled a one mile section of the highway picking up bottles, cans, tires, toys, cookbooks, construction material and many other unique finds.
After the cleanup, the volunteers gathered back at the Wetland Center for a pizza lunch and to vote on the most unique item found that day.
This year, Barbara Walker Elementary School student Katy Guerin made the best find with a complete set of Barbie Toys, shoes included.
The volunteers who helped in this event are greatly appreciated. Next year’s clean up will be held the third Saturday in February.
