Rotarians take on the town of Mayo

Mayo — On Thursday, April 3, the Rotary Club of Mayo, as part of their community investment, turned a single road clean-up project into an entire town clean-up.

“The “Adopt a Highway” turned into adopt a town!” said Rotarian Leenette McMillan-Fredriksson.

The original plan was to just clean up CR 400, however, Mayo Correctional Institution Warden Scott Crews, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Mayo, enlisted the help of his inmate crew.

“They got over-ambitious and cleaned up CR 400 for us,” said McMillan-Fredriksson.

With the inmates cleaning up CR 400, the team of Rotarians decided to move their project to town.

“We covered all of downtown Mayo,” McMillan-Fredriksson said. “Boy, did we fill up some garbage bags! Wow!”

Thanks go out to all the Rotarians, Darby Pearson, Cody Walker and the football players for their help in completing the project.
