Even though the Gloucester Ruritan Club has not been able to hold its monthly dinner meetings recently due to COVID-19, the club is still active. A team of six volunteers met in the early morning hours of Saturday, Feb. 6, to pick up 19 bags of rain-soaked trash for the club’s Adopt-A-Highway project. Reduced amounts of trash were collected per bag due to the weight from the almost daily rainfall. The club’s section of highway runs from Route 606 (Fary’s Mill Road) at Route 17 to the secondary entrance to Beaverdam Park. Shown here are Henry “Hurricane” Thompson and Barbara Bauer, both of whom are fully protected from both COVID-19 and wintry weather. Additionally, they donated five bags of recyclable aluminum cans to the Giving Garden Foundation.
