ALBION — The Albion Rotary Club spearheaded a trash pickup this morning along the railroad tracks from Platt Street past Liberty Street, and then part of one of the fields across from Walmart.

Albion Interact Club and service learning students, and some members of the cross country, boys and girls basketball teams joined in the effort.

The group filled 23 garbage bags with trash in about 2 hours. Pictured, in front, from left: Rotary Club members Deb Boyer and Tom Rivers, and Dalton Dexter.

This area along the railroad tracks was much cleaner after this group went through.
