HARRISBURG – Rep. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery) presented area Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) volunteers with certificates for their work in helping clean up local roadways.
“I presented recognition certificates from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives to a group of men and women who take part in PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program, in which volunteers ‘adopt’ a highway to collect litter,” said Toepel. “Without men, women and businesses supporting this program, litter on our highways would be a big problem and would require PennDOT using tax dollars to address it.”
Local individuals, businesses and organizations participating in the program include Tyler and Alexis Zilen; the Bonenberger family; Perkiomenville Mennonite Church; Raw Replenish; Meinzer Law Office; Green Lane-Marlborough Lions Club; Perkiomen Masonic Lodge No. 595; Lower Frederick Republican Club; Rutter’s Corner Notary; Indian Valley AMBUCS; IT Landis; Christopher Dock High School; Christ United Church of Christ; and Harleysville Rotary Club.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the AAH program, which currently has over 4,900 participating groups, more than 100,000 volunteers and over 10,000 miles of adopted state-maintained roadways.
