Spring 2016 Highway Cleanup

After a hiatus due to construction, the Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers were excited to get back to work on their section of highway and do their part to improve their community.  The weather was perfect on a beautiful Saturday afternoon for the volunteers to make their newly upgraded section of I-80/35 look great again after many seasons of construction and renovation. IAF is glad to be a part of the volunteer Adopt a Highway program in central Iowa with annual clean ups to reinforce their commitment to community both within and without the group. Every year IAF volunteers can be seen taking care of the section of I-35/80 between Grand Avenue and Mills Civic Parkway on the Southwestern corner of the Metro, cleaning up everything from abandoned pop cans to even massive truck tires. This year was no different with great weather, a fun atmosphere, and a dedication to the cleanliness and engagement of the community with several drivers honking their appreciation and support of IAF! We hope to see you at our next highway clean up as well as at any of our many community and volunteer events!
