Members of the Rotary Clubs of Terrace and Terrace-Skeena Valley joined with other community members Sunday to clear debris along Highway 37 south of town.
Rotarians from both clubs were busy taking part in their annual Spring Adopt-a-Highway Clean-up, with a number of other groups participating, including the Terrace Northmen Rugby club, L'ecole Jack Cook and the Terrace Ringette Association.  We thank everyone for their help in gathering up 62 bags of trash -- and thanks to all motorists along the route who kept an eye out for us!
