On Saturday, June 11, members of the Lakehills American Legion Post 410 were assisted by the Medina Lake VFD in their quarterly Adopt-A-Highway cleanup of FM1283 between the Bandera county line and PR37. This stretch of FM1283 is one of the most heavily traveled routes for visitors entering our scenic Medina Lake area, and the volunteer efforts of the American Legion are in part responsible for keeping it clean and beautiful. The team started their cleanup at 7am and by 10am had picked up more than a full truckload of roadside trash and debris. The Medina Lake VFD assisted by providing a fire apparatus and personnel to ensure traffic safety and emergency medical assistance if needed.

The Lakehills American Legion Post 410 conducts their cleanup efforts on two days each quarter. The next Adopt-A-Highway events will be held on Thursday, August 11 and Saturday, August 13. For more information, you can contact the Lakehills American Legion Post 410 at (830) 751-3711.
