Elkridge Seniors Clean Up Route 1

More than a dozen seniors did their part during Howard County's "20-minute cleanup."

Route 1 looks a little cleaner today.

County Executive Ken Ulman challenged citizens Thursday to spend 20 minutes cleaning up their surroundings, and that's just what Elkridge seniors did, led by senior center management Jeanne Slater and Becky Mengel.

With bags in hand, 17 participants picked up debris outside the and along Washington Boulevard.

Alvina Chesner said that the group normally has exercise class between 9 and 10 a.m. on Thursdays but headed outside instead for the cleanup.

"If we can pick up trash, we're in pretty good shape," said Chesner.
