The Tri-State Freethinkers (covering parts of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana) recently adopted a highway. That’s awesome in and of itself, but what makes this particular highway special is that it’s the entrance road to the Creation Museum 🙂 Specifically, it’s the road off the Petersburg Rd. exit, the main artery into Ken Ham‘s kingdom.
Their first cleanup was held over the weekend:
Jim Helton, the American Atheist Regional Director in Kentucky, also offered these reasons for doing it:
First of all, Adopt-a-Highway is a great program. It is good for the environment & the community. Second, we picked a location which would be easy for volunteers to get to. Third, the signs have let people passing by that they are not alone and we have a presence in the area.
Plus, I would add, at least one organization is contributing something positive to the area.
