Highway Helpers

On a sunny Sunday in May, White River Credit Union staff took part in the first Adopt-A-Road clean up. The group, about 14 strong, adopted a section of state Route 410 just past the Enumclaw golf course, about two miles to just past the former Weyerhaeuser mill. Sporting orange vests and wearing yellow hard hats, they picked up litter along the stretch of highway. In a few weeks, White River Credit Union will be attached to an Adopt-A-Road sign on the highway near their designated area. According to credit union representatives, the group is required to pick up litter four times per year. “I just think that folks need to know how easy it is to participate,” Yvette St. Luise said. “And really, it was fun too. People honked at us and bikers and bicyclists waved at us. What a fun thing to do for your community. Anybody can do it.”   -
