Lions, Leos, Scouts and community members joined forces to clean up about 80 percent of the roadsides in the Town of Kendall. The Lions provided safety vests to participants as well as refreshments following. The Lions Club thanks the Town of Kendall Highway Department for its support in the cleanup.

A group of community members gather at the town highway department and await their road assignments.

Members of the Leos Club at Kendall Central School – Brook Andrus, Evan Gaesser and Julia Smith – pick up garbage from by the road.

Volunteers filled many trash bags with roadside debris.
