Spring Adopt-A-Highway

Ah Spring, when a young (and old) man's (and woman's and child's) fancy turns to -- garbage?

Well, at GMS that's what happens because Spring means time to clean up our adopted highway!

Members gather together no matter what the weather and work diligently to clean up a one mile stretch of road in Ball Ground, Georgia.

Sometimes there are goodies hidden along the route and other times there are goodies when we return with garbage bags filled!

After the road is once again sparkling clean, the entire group descends upon a local eatery where we sample the best of regional cuisine.

With bellies full we often turn to a quick rock collecting experience in the area.

Though it can be hard and dirty work, it is surprisingly satisfying and fun!
