The first cleanup of 2017 took place on January 18. We had a great turnout, 25 dedicated volunteers. They picked up 42 bags of trash along Jimmie Kerr Blvd as well as on a portion of Overfield Road adjacent to the Ranch. They also picked up 12 pounds of aluminum cans with the proceeds going to the Desert Woodcrafters Club. Marv Enerson crushes all the cans and removes the pop tops. The pop tops are donated to the Ronald McDonald House.

A huge thank you goes out to the following Robson Ranch residents: Tom Harris, Bill Meyer, Tommy Yotsuuye, Mike Pennington, Taffy Vaughn, Beth Schroeder, Doug Connell, Bob and Mary Burton, Peg Brady, Bob and Gwen Krostue, Gerard Wittman, Gary and Shirley McMillan, Jody Muth, Bill Sturgeon, Charles Kocher, Chris Marshall, Ted and Jill Lui, Greg Knutson, Barry Christensen, John Gluch and Marv Enerson.

Special thanks to those who helped with transportation, water and supplies. Since we no longer have daytime patrol during the week we depend on our volunteers to assist.

As you drive along Jimmie Kerr, take note of the new Adopt-A- Street signs installed by the City of Eloy. They are located one mile in each direction from the entrance to the Ranch, marking the area we maintain.

The Adopt-A-Street program is headed by committee chair John Gluch who is not only a Robson Ranch resident but is also an active member of the Eloy Edge Group. I serve as the coordinator for scheduling and volunteers.
