HIGHWAY CLEAN-UP PROJECT           

ANTRIM DEMS  keep our Antrim County  highways clean.  Three times a year (spring, summer, and fall) , Antrim Dems volunteer for cleaning up sections of two highways in Antrim County, US-31 and M-88. 

Over the past 14 years , the Antrim Dems have helped 'keep Antrim County highways beautiful' by picking up almost 500 bags of litter along 5 miles of Antrim County highway.  

Dates for 2021 cleanup are:

Spring: May 1-9

Summer: July 17-25

Fall: September 25-October 3.

Want to get involved?  Contact antrimdemsmich@gmail.com and join us for one or all of these events.
