ALBION – Back around 1960 the Albion Lions Club provided trash barrels for downtown Albion. They were painted silver with black letters stating, “Help Keep Albion Clean.”

Shown here, from left, are Kenneth Scharett from Scharett & Mitchell Funeral Home; “Ted” Church, an attorney from Church and Church; and Mayor John D. Robinson.

The A & P Food Store shows in back of Ken Scharett’s head while “Jack” Robinson wipes the can clean.
