October 17, 2023 – Thirteen FOSM Volunteers Complete Adopt-a-highway Project

From project leader Steve Roholt:

Thirteen FOSM volunteers participated in our semi-annual trash pickup and brush removal between mile markers 4 and 5 on state highway 536. Traffic was light and the weather ideal.

We divided into 2 teams: Pauline Ho, Rick Buss, Tim Brown, Karen Grief, Rav Nicholson , Judy Pekarek, and Jerry Pekarek picked up and bagged trash while Dan Benton, Don Carnicom, Cliff Giles, Sim Cook, and Jamey Browning did brush cutting in the ditches and along the guardrail.

We completed our work by 11:00 AM.

FOSM board member Steve Roholt organized and led our first Adopt-a-Highway trash-collection and brush-removal day for our adopted section (Mile 4 to 5) of the Crest Highway (State Highway 536). Our agreement with NMDOT is to pick up trash twice per year.
