Boy Scout Troop 359 helps with the Adopt a Highway Program!

Boy Scout Troop 359 helped with the Adopt a Highway Program Saturday.They had 8 boys and 3 leaders and collected 20 bags of trash including large items like a car bumper! They helped their Troop Sponsor, Whitehouse United Methodist Church, police it’s 2 mile stretch of 346 that is part of the TXDOT Adopt a Hwy Program and is sponsored locally by KWB. It is amazing and sad how much trash is thrown along our roadways in just a few months since the last cleanup effort. We wish we could say we found no trash! Great Work Scouts! You are learning how to be great citizens!
