Our long tradition of helping beautify our highways and getting public recognition for atheism (in the form of a road sign informing motorists that this stretch of highway is maintained by Minnesota Atheists) continues.

On Sunday, September 28, Minnesota Atheists will be performing its Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup. The work goes from 10:00 am to about noon on Highway 10 in Rice, Minnesota. We will meet at The Old Creamery Cafe, 405 Main St., Rice, MN 56367 (follow the detour signs to the Old Creamery in Rice). 

Arrive at 9:45 a.m. and stay for lunch afterwards. Gloves and sturdy footwear are recommended. The Department of Transportation sent out reminders to all crews that no children under the age of 12 are to help. This is a safety concern of the state.

Go to Minnesota Atheists Meetup page to coordinate car pools from the Twin Cities. Contact: Deb Doucette, 320-253-5422, or Steve Petersen, spetersen175@comcast.net, for more details.

Hope to see you there!
