On April 18th Friends of Eldon picked up trash along a 2-mile stretch of Highway 16 as part of the Iowa DOT Adopt a Highway Program. Trash, tires and a few snakes were discovered along the way. The group also picked up trash along Chippewa Creek from West Walnut Street to the Des Moines River. In total, volunteers collected more than 20 bags of trash. This is a volunteer program and qualifies as community service hours. To become involved in future cleanup efforts please contact Eldon City Hall.
