Highway Cleanup and Lunch and/or Dinner, September 27, noon, Rice, MN

  • September 27, 2009 · 12:00 PM
  • Old Creamery Cafe

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

On Sunday, September 27, Minnesota Atheists will be performing its Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup. The Cleanup is scheduled from 1:00-3:30 p.m. on Highway 10 in Rice, MN, but depending on the size of the turnout, it may not take that long. In any case, we'll meet at noon at The Old Creamery Cafe, 405 Main St., Rice, MN 56367 (west of the stoplight on Hwy. 10). Phone: [masked]. This restaurant has a great all-you-can-eat brunch buffet, so bring a healthy appetite.

Arrive at noon for lunch beforehand and/or stay for dinner afterwards. Gloves and sturdy footwear are recommended.
Transportation is available from the Twin Cities. Contact: Deb Doucette (Randall) [masked], August Berkshire (Minneapolis) [masked], Steve Petersen (Shoreview) [masked], or Jack Caravela (Northeast Minneapolis) achair.mnatheists.org for more details. Also, call August if it looks like it will rain to see if the event has been postponed.

Hope to see you there!

    We finished just ahead of the rain, thanks to some great volunteers.

    14 people were able to help on the cleanup this time. It went fast and we were finished just before the heavy wind, rain and drop in temperature. God was watching over our highway cleanup this year. Now if only we could get god to watch over the wars, starvation and other areas of death and destruction in the world.

    It's great when we get a crowd of a dozen or more, since the work goes faster. Nice group of people, too. Thanks to Deb for all her work in organizing this.

    I was about to call August to ask for a ride, when I realized my problem isn't not knowing where Rice is (because there are such things as maps), it's driving that far alone and being bored. So, does anyone else need a ride? I can drive someone else from S Mpls.

    I RSVP'd "yes" but I have no idea where Rice is!
