Science Club Cleans the Community

Bennett Krohne, Staff Writer

On Saturday, September 10th, the OHS Science Club teamed up with Lion’s Club to clean up the highways leading to the interstate. Starting at 8 am, about 20 members of the club met at Dairy Queen, where they then split up and cleaned the sides of the roads, all the way to the exit ramps. Many passing cars showed their appreciation by honking their horns and waving. Everyone who participated had a great time making Okawville a better and cleaner community. 

I was lucky enough to have been a part of this service. Every year I look forward to trash pickup day because it’s a great time with friends while bettering the community that I love the most. It always feels great knowing that I am making a difference.
