Clean minded Rotarians from The Rotary Club of Bishop hit the road last month to help clean up the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 395 by Millk Creek, just south of the Pine Creek turn-off.
The work crew was assigned two miles of the highway on Tuesday, April 29, and collected several bags of trash. 
The Bishop Club has participated in this project for almost 20 years.  Robert Atlee, who is in charge of the clean-up project this year, Josh Ingram, DeEtte Johnston, Corene Seaver and Andria Witmer all volunteered their time to clean the highway. 
“Belonging to a Rotary club gives men and women an enjoyable and organized way to make a contribution to their community,” and regular highway clean-ups are just one part of the club’s mission.  
The Rotary Club of Bishop meets every Tuesday at noon at Astorga’s Restaurant on U.S. Highway 395.
Visitors are welcome to come enjoy fellowship, tasty food and interesting programs.  Lunch is $10.00 Call Maggie Kingsbury at 760 872 4219.
