New to AAR – Janet Smith and Gina Handley

Janet Smith, new AAR Volunteer

Keep Pickens Beautiful is pleased to announce 2 more families have teamed up to adopt a road and become part our Adopt A Road program. Janet Smith (pictured) and Gina Handley got together to adopt Whitestone Road in Talking. Their first pick up yielded a truck load of litter. Thank you folks for caring about our beautiful county and helping to keep it clean.  Keep up the good job. Littering the roadways is a crime in the State of Georgia, punishable by a LARGE fine and/or jail time.
