One recent Friday evening, Ryan Billard told his mom he was going to take his trailer and pick up some garbage outside.

Once he started, some of his friends were happy to join in.

The next morning they continued the clean up with more kids pitching in to help out. By Sunday afternoon they had completed their cleanup of the roadsides throughout the community.

For their efforts the children were treated to supper, covered by donations from grateful individuals of the community who recognize the value in the children taking a weekend to help make a difference.

The children are very proud of themselves and plan to continue to help keep the community clean.
