“CRAPE MURDER”: It’s what we do with those flowering trees during their dormant season that has landscape experts baffled and East Texans re-thinking their late winter “to do” list.
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!
KWB with the help of First Baptist Youth Group replanted bulbs, weeded and trimmed Latana along the Brown Wall and Four Corners in Whitehouse. KWB President and Master Gardner, Hazel Bateman demonstrated the proper techniques for the youth group before starting. Thank you First Baptist Youth Group for the hard work and learning to be great citizens!
