On the morning of Nov. 3, members of the Tryon Kiwanis Club spent two hours picking up litter along Rt. 108 from the roundabout in Columbus to Harmon Field Road in Tryon. Shown above are dedicated workers, in the front row (left to right) Ernie Giannini, Dick Belthoff, Dr. Mark McCall, Jennifer Thompson, Lynn Montgomery, Bill Hague and Blake Smyth. In the back are Denny Rook, Tollie Ross and Lee Cobourn. Trash bags were filled with scraps of political signs and plastic flowers that had been blown about. Of course, there were the usual beverage cans, bottles and cups, cigarette butts, and food wrappers. There are trash cans available all over this county – let’s use them! (photo by Lynn Montgomery)
