The Adopt-A-Highway volunteers held their 27th annual Nebraska Trash-Off April 1st thru April 30th, 2017. In conjunction with this, the Rotary Club of Burwell held its annual trash pick-up project on April 18th. The club has adopted a two-mile section of Highway 91 west of Burwell. The Rotary members joined other volunteers in a statewide cleaning event in keeping Nebraska roadsides clean and litter-free.
Rotary members helping with the cleanup project were David Ridings, David Sawyer, Kellie Carr, Amy Brunken, Brenda Brott, and Michelle Sawyer.
