ROWLAND, PA — Members of The Lackawaxen River Conservancy, Bernt Balchen Lodge (Sons of Norway) and Men of Bethel gathered at Mt. Moriah cemetery at Kimbles on the morning of Saturday, October 22, for their annual fall trash pick-up under the PennDOT Adopt-a-Highway Program. Scouring a 10-mile stretch of the scenic towpath between Kimbles and Rowland, they enjoyed the crystalline autumn air and the vibrant fall colors as they collected close to 20 bags of trash, composed mostly of beer cans of various vintages, tattered plastic bags, fast-food containers as and discarded construction materials. Afterward they stopped for a photograph and a lunch at the Rowland Café.
