Northwest Signal: Henry Co. Litter Roundup collects 4 tons of trash

HENRY COUNTY, OH ( NORTHWEST SIGNAL) - The results of the 15th Annual Henry County Litter Roundup were recently announced.

"Once again we had great participation for the event," said event organizer Lynn Hoops. "A total of 652 volunteers - 40 households and 29 groups - covered approximately 237 miles of township and county roads. They collected approximately 485 bags of trash, totaling a little over 4 tons."

Hoops said the event always attracts volunteers of all ages and people volunteer for a variety of reasons.

"We really appreciate the volunteers that turn out for this event,"

Hoops said. "It's a great event that crosses the ages. We have families with young people all through the elderly that sign up. Some sign up to teach about not littering to some wanting the exercise.

Some do it as a fundraiser and others do it as a community service. I see people that are proud of Henry County and want to help take care of it."

    Toledo has a long and storied history of hockey in the city going back to the first team, the Toledo Mercurys, who played their first season in 1947-48. Other iterations included the Blades, the Hornets, the Goaldiggers and the Storm. For a short time, in 1949-50, the team was actually called the Toledo Buckeyes.
