A dozen members of the Perry Lions Club met on Earth Day, Friday, April 22 a 5 p.m. at the intersection of Iowa Highway 141 and F Avenue, two miles east of the Dawson corner, to “walk the ditch.”

Club members picked up trash along the roadside on a two-mile section of the roadway. The Perry Lions have been doing this service project for more than 20 years. The club members picked up several hundred pounds of debris.

After the project, the group met at the Hotel Pattee for a meal. No formal business meeting was held.
