AH HA, SPRING IS ON THE WAY – Don’t you just anticipate the coming of Spring and all the beauty it brings with it?  New life is all around and our energy seems to flourish as well. This statement brings me to my topic for this month’s message. Lately as I have been driving around our area, I have been startled by the amount of trash being left along our sidewalks and roadways. A few years back I visited in Canada and was amazed at the cleanliness of their terrain. You don’t see trash of any kind, not even a deposit of abc (already been chewed) gum. They have such pride in their country and her beauty by keeping it clean. Could we not do the same or out town and surrounding  area by making an effort to be sure that we don’t dump our cigarettes at traffic light stops or throw them and other trash from our car windows? The town furnishes garbage cans on the sidewalks for the disposal of any trash you may have when visiting in Gate City. Please join me in thinking twice before tossing trash on our streets. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
