Adopt-A-Highway & Adopt-A-Road Pickup - May 14, 2016


Adopt-A-Highway offers Pennsylvania citizens the opportunity to show their pride in our beautiful state by caring for the environment. We all know that a more attractive Pennsylvania is more attractive to our citizens, tourists and to businesses.

Food wrappers, aluminum cans, newspapers and cigarette packs. From the city to the countryside, this is the trash that many careless people leave on Pennsylvania’s highways and roads. It is not a pretty sight, and it certainly does not make a good impression on people who are traveling through our area.

This is the twenty-second year that the Manheim Township Lions Club has participated in the Pennsylvania Adopt-A-Highway and Manheim Township’s Adopt-A-Road programs. We have adopted the Fruitville Pike from Route 30 north to the Township line and Hess Boulevard from the Fruitville Pike to the Lititz Pike. During our last pickup on May 14 we collected two bags of litter, two bags of recyclables, one small pine tree, one truck universal joint and two quarters from these roads.
