Making Manson Beautiful
- Published on 2018-05-10 03:43:52
The majority of people living in Manson love the community and proud to be here, sharing this amazing place on Lake Chelan with friends and family. So, with Manson Apple Blossom just around the corner Manson needed a little cleaning up. Manson Chamber of Commerce and Manson High School stepped up to the plate, in short order Manson was ready for Apple Blossom!
Debbie Conwell, Manson Chamber of Commerce Executive Director and Mariah Pyle, Chamber Secretary were co-chairs working with Shellee Ludeman, the local Adopt-a-Highway Coordinator for the North Central Region. Adopt-a-Highway is a roadside clean-up program that allows community members to take pride and local ownership in their community.
Thirteen volunteers met at the Manson Chamber office at 8:00 am on Saturday – May 5 where they received safety instructions and official DOT cleanup gear. The crew cleaned along the two mile stretch of Highway 150 starting at the corner of Hale and Highway 150 (Green Dot Sub) and heading east two miles towards Chelan. The weather was great and several sacks of garbage were filled. It was a very successful outing!!
On Wednesday - May 9 students from Manson High School continued with a tradition of making Manson ready for Apple Blossom that dates back to 1983. Students under the leadership of Manson High School teacher Jennifer Koth took on several different locations including the beaches at Manson Bay. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words. The following are a few photos that tells the story of their day.
We encourage everyone living in the Manson community to do their part and take a moment to help clean and keep clean the area where you live………Keep Manson Beautiful!!!! We thank everyone that took part in both these events, now we are ready for Manson Apple Blossom.
