The Alpharetta Lions Club has adopted Roswell Street from Milton Avenue to Main Street through the adopt-a-mile program.

“Instead of giving individual recognition awards this year, our outgoing president challenged our members to take on a project of service. That is how Lions are, you know, we tend to have a heart of service over self,” said David Crawford, president.

The adopt-a-mile program originated in Texas in the 1980s when an engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation saw debris flying from the back of a truck.

As a part of Keep Alpharetta Beautiful, the city instituted an adopt-a-mile program as an opportunity for volunteer service.

“As we understand it, picking up trash can be an expensive proposition for the city. We are ecstatic that we can also serve our community this way and help keep Alpharetta looking great,” Crawford said.
