SummitCove Vacation Lodging recently signed up for Colorado's Adopt a Highway Program and has sponsored a 2 mile section of I-70, just East of the Eisenhower Tunnel. This past Friday, members of the SummitCove team suited up in bright orange vests and loaded up with garbage bags, gloves and sunscreen and tackled our first Highway Cleanup Day! Although we didn't find any IPhones or bags of money as we were all hoping, we did manage to clean up and pack over 20 bags of trash from the highway! We found things like rusty truck tire chains, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, tow ropes, bungee cords, cigarette butts, hubcaps and license plates. We considered the day a huge success and even managed to wrangle some help from a few of our awesome owners! A big thanks goes out to everyone who participated in the cleanup. Although it really was hard work, bending down and up and down and up in the hot summer sun, we still had alot of fun and helped a great cause- keeping Colorado clean and beautiful! Our next cleanup day will be scheduled for sometime in August, we'll keep you posted! Check out some of the photos from our first clean-up day !
