Neighbors made a practical personal contribution to a cleaner environment on Saturday, June 25. Volunteers from Citizens of Philipstown, wearing neon safety vests, orange bags and “litter pickers,” cleaned a 2-mile stretch of Route 9.
The Adopt-A-Highway program, sponsored by Putnam County, allows individuals, groups, and businesses to make an immediate difference in the town. Based on the success of this first effort, Citizens of Philipstown have already made plans for another cleaning day in the fall, and are inviting volunteers in Philipstown to make a personal difference right in their own backyard.
