Dear Milton Neighbor,
Last Month the Milton Milers Walking Club and the D'Aversa Family adopted a one mile section of Bethany Bend Road east of Highway 9. The purpose of the Milton Grows Green Adopt-a-Road program is to encourage keeping our roads clean from trash. Adopting a road includes picking up trash and recyclables each quarter.
This weekend the Hopewell Middle School Eco-Explorers and teachers and a few Milton Milers came out to pick-up trash and recyclables.
The Milton Milers walking club meets Sunday and Wednesday afternoons at 5:00 PM to walk for health and wellness. Join your neighbors this Sunday, November 15, 2009, at 5:00 PM. Milton Milers meet at the Starbucks on Bethany Bend Road at Highway 9.
It is my honor to sponsor this group and to encourage healthy lifestyles. Walking is the number one exercise choice of health professionals to help keep you healthy.
The HMS Eco-Explorers members are middle school students and their teachers who care about the environment. Projects include: a school-wide recycling program, can-tabs recycling, environmental education, water conservation efforts, tree planting and protection and much more. HMS has adopted the section of road outside the school. A ceremony and sign planting is scheduled for December 1, 2009. HMS is proud to be a Milton Grows Green and Evergreen School.
To find out more about the Milton Milers, join us this Sunday at 5:00 at Starbucks on Bethany Bend Road for the 5 mile or the 3.5 mile walk.
