The Fall 2023 Decorah Rotary Roadside Clean-Up crew, getting ready for action (not pictured: Roger Huinker, Jim Morrow, and Brecka Putnam)
Twice per year Decorah Rotarians and guests from other like-minded groups come together to pick up trash along the club's designated section of Highway 9. Our crew for the Fall 2023 event, hosted on Saturday, October 21, ranged in age from 16-79 years old. Our team picked up litter from Kelly Real Estate to the roadside clean up sign located about a quarter-mile west of the intersection of Highways 9 and 52. Our club extends its thanks to everyone who participated, as well as Decorah Community School District for inviting high school students to participate, Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois Service Unit 616 for their multi-year partnership, and Thrivent Financial for providing coffee and breakfast for our members.
