Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off

Saturday, April 4, 2009
The Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off is the single largest one day
cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’ signature event for
the Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community
improvement program, held annually from March 1 through May 31.

In 2008, more than 57,000 volunteers picked up 5 million pounds of
litter to help keep our state beautiful.

The Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off is part of the partnership between
Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation.  
Participants can receive trash bags, volunteer giveaways, promotional
items, and more.
A big THANK YOU to the City of Valley View who provided 2 large trash trucks from
WASTE MANAGEMENT for Valley View residents to rid their property of refuse.
Probably the worst unsightly area within the city limits was the north side of the railroad tracks
crossing FM 922.   A big THANK YOU goes to these ladies, Terry Wilhite, Perlene Newton,
Anita Thayer, Gail Roane and Natalie Massengale.
Great Job Ladies!
A well deserved rest; L/R Anita Thayer, Gail Roane, Natalie Massengale, Perlene Newton, ?
Lance, Tracy Lance.
After the trash off many of us went to eat at Big Fatty's.  Parked there was a interesting antique police car and
wished to share these pictues.
