The Inter-Mountain
Central Chapel United Methodist Church, a volunteer in the Adopt-A-Highway program, completed a litter cleanup of Route 92 from Meadowville to Baughman Road on April 21. Volunteers worked more than hour hours to pick up 26 bags of litter on the 3.26 miles of adopted road. Volunteers who participated in this cleanup are, front row, from left, William “Buddy” Cross, Louella Cross, Sandy Marteney, Jason Marteney and Debbie Poling; back row, Jeff Cross, Lenwood Bolyard, Duane Poling, the Rev. John Flynn, Janette Cross and Donna Erickson. Central Chapel United Methodist Church has been a member of the Adopt-A-Highway program since July 2009 and has removed a cumulative total of 168 bags of litter from the area. The program is a joint effort of the Division of Highways and the Department of Environmental Protection, which estimate that the average bag of litter weighs 35 pounds. Since the program began in 1988, volunteers have removed millions of pounds of litter from West Virginia highways.
