ACT NOW & Gerrish Police Road Clean-Up Completed

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were not able to complete our Spring Road Clean-Up, however we were able to pick up the trash on both sides of County Road 100 from the top of Pioneer Hill to Hillsdale Drive last Tuesday.

16 volunteers, including 4 Gerrish Officers participated and 15 trash bags were collected. Pizza and pop/water was provided afterwards for the volunteers by ACT NOW.

Thank you to everyone who helped out with this bi-annual event to keep our community clean! See you next Spring for our next clean-up.

Stuff the Bus – September 11th & 12th at Walmart

Help out the Roscommon and Houghton Lake Rotary Clubs as they join efforts to gather school supplies for 4 different schools in Roscommon County. Lockers are not being used due to COVID-19 regulations so kids must carry their supplies with them throughout the day. Pencil cases and pouches make this much easier. Please help out if you can!

Have you seen this Vehicle or Camper?
