Ro­tary adopts a road

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

A small band of Ro­tar­i­ans braved the cold win­ter’s morn­ing on Sun­day to pick up rub­bish along the Sey­mour-Puck­a­pun­yal ar­te­rial, as part of the Ro­tary Club of Sey­mour’s on­go­ing com­mit­ment to the Adopta-road project.

The route yielded a truck­load of rub­bish as the Ro­tar­i­ans shared ca­ma­raderie, al­ways with the hope of find­ing hid­den trea­sure.

Most of the rub­bish, how­ever, is de­bris thrown from pass­ing traf­fic with a large por­tion be­ing from fast food out­lets.

Adopt-a-road, with the aim of tidy­ing up Sey­mour, is con­ducted three times a year and in­cludes the town’s out­skirts from Sey­mour to Puck­a­pun­yal, Shep­par­ton and Yea.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers are al­ways wel­come to par­tic­i­pate.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at www.ro­tary sey­mour.org.au or like us on Face­book: Ro­tary Club of Sey­mour.

Emu bob: Ro­tary mem­bers spent a few hours pick­ing up road­side rub­bish on Sun­day as part of the Adopt-a-road project.
