The Green Team from Mountaineer Casino recently helped out with the Adopt-A-Highway clean-up along a two-mile stretch of Route 2.  The team contacted New Cumberland Community Projects Director George Hines who has worked with the state for the last 15 years in its highway clean-up program.  He was glad to welcome a new group of young people who were willing to make a difference in the community.  The group worked to clean along the road from the Woodview Golf Course sign south of New Cumberland to the sewage plant entrance north of town.  Hines explained the guidelines for the project, and the Green Team agreed to tackle the job as part of their community volunteer efforts.  On March 30th the team worked for three hours and collected 19 bags of trash which they took back to the casino’s dumpsters.  The state provided trash bags, pick-up sticks, gloves, and orange safety vests.  Any group who would like to be part of the Adopt-A-Highway program’s efforts to keep West Virginia roads clean, should contact the state for more information.  Hines would like to thank Green Team leader Justin Gaston and his volunteers for helping to make Hancock County a little cleaner.
