The Mid Ohio Atheists (in Mansfield) recently adopted a two-mile stretch of highway — Interstate 71, between mile markers 166 and 168 — and they recently did their second cleanup:
It took about 3 hours to do the cleanup and get everyone back off the interstate. Many of us went to a local fast food restaurant for lunch afterwards.
I want to thank everyone that participated, it’s people like you that will put a positive face on atheism for the world to see. For those with open minds, it shows that helping and serving others is a human thing, not a god thing.
We need to do 2 more cleanups before the end of the season in October. The next pickup will be September 10th and the last one for this year will be October 22nd.
On a side note, they just had a picnic over the weekend and had an excellent turnout. We need more groups like this!
