Rotarians, family members, and friends gathered Saturday, August 28, to clean up trash and debris along Rowe Boulevard. Project Chair Bob Reedy energized the trash collectors with coffee and donuts. Once donned with safety vests, gloves, and trash bags, the group dispersed to pick up trash along the ¾ mile stretch from College Creek to Weems Creek. After an hour of pick-up, the group reconvened with full trash bags in hand.
The Rotary Club of Annapolis cleans this stretch of Rowe Boulevard twice per year – once prior to the season opener of Navy home football games and again prior to Commissioning Week in May.
The objective is to make the heavily-traveled route from town to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium more attractive for midshipmen, parents, guests, visitors, and residents.
