St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point’s Environmental Club recently did a neighborhood clean-up. The club members walked along Joliet St. cleaning up trash. They adopted this highway that is in front of their church and school. Along the way they stopped in front of their sign to snap a picture. Environmental Club sponsors stress the importance of being good citizens and decreasing our environmental footprint. About 30 students enthusiastically cleaned the neighborhood. The kids picked up about 4 bags full of trash. Sarah, who is an 8th grader at the school said, “I was happy to get the opportunity to make our town cleaner. It was even more special that we got to clean the highway our school adopted.”
