LGLA Hosts Adopt-A-Road Cleanup Event On Okeechobee Blvd.

Volunteers included community members and local students.

The Loxahatchee Groves Landowners’ Association sponsored a litter cleanup on Okeechobee Blvd. with the support of Seminole Ridge High School students and Palm Beach County School Board Member Marcia Andrews on Saturday, March 4.

It was no small feat to clean up litter on a very well-traveled road that bisects the community, but organizers Paul Coleman and Mary McNicholas led the LGLA team.

Road traffic was slowed for the safety of the school students and community volunteers with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office having a large presence to enact the safety plan.

The LGLA thanks the PBSO and the Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue reserves for their patrols, along with community partners Red Barn Feed & Supply for the host area, Everglades Farm Equipment Group, Geoffrey Sluggett & Associates and Palm Beach County Engineering for all the equipment provided to coordinate the event.

Plans are to continue to accomplish this Loxahatchee Groves Landowners’ Association beautification project for the benefit of the community and local students, who received community service hours for their effort.
