SP Lions Club Renews Adopt-A-Spot Contract for Hamilton Boulevard

(South Plainfield, November 30.) Michael Zushma, president of the South Plainfield Lions Club, has renewed the groupís Adopt-A-Spot agreement with the South Plainfield Clean Business Association. Three to seven people will continue to collect litter from Hamilton Boulevard where it runs along Route I-287. This stretch of road, from Stelton Road to South Clinton Avenue, fronts on The Home Depot. It catches litter that blows out of the parking lot. It is a busy road, with improperly covered trucks losing pieces of their loads, and inconsiderate drivers tossing litter out of car windows. Everything gets trapped against the fence that separates the highway right-of-way from Hamilton Boulevard. During a recent cleanup, the group filled six bags with trash in only an hour. The International Lions Club was founded in 1917. The organization is best known for fighting blindness, but clubs also engage in many kinds of community projects, including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled. The CBA is glad that the Lions have agreed to continue adopting this spot, which is a hazardous area due to the high volume of traffic. If many groups each take responsibility for a small segment of the Borough, the town stays a clean, attractive place to live and work with minimal effort for each organization.
