China native and currently summer resident Richard Dillenbeck, has been spearheading an effort to clean up the roadside along Lakeview Drive, in China, along with side roads.
He and Tom Lefferts, Killdeer Point resident, were out along the road on August 26, picking up trash. Dillenbeck also wants to recognize and thank all who are already picking up trash in front of their respective homes. This will allow the volunteer teams to focus on the areas in between where most of the litter is tossed. He is still recruiting teams of people who are interested in helping where they can focus on the open distances between where most of the litter is found. His goal is to have teams on most of the roads in China.
Teams will be heading out again on Saturday, September 15. Those interested in taking part in the project can reach Dillenbeck at 445-8345. Also, with adult supervision, the school has offered to support the program along school property.
