8 club members braved the cold and other obstacles this past Saturday morning to pick up trash along Lynn Road between Lead Mine and Ray Roads. Lead by project chair Paul Stone, Jerry Patterson, Stephen Dieckhaus, Ed Smallwood, Scott Tarkenton, Mike Wienold, Steven Nelson and Chris Morden all joined in the fun as did Stephen Dieckhaus’s partner Maritza Ortiz, Mike Wienold’s son, Paul Stone’s son and Jerry Patterson’s grandson.
The big excitement of the day was experienced by the half of the crew that went towards Ray Road. A drunk driver jumped the curb, hit a pine tree, and took off running/staggering while his pickup truck rolled back into the street. All Rotarians and guests are safe and unharmed.
