Metro Wire Staff

Members of the Plover VFW gave Hoover Ave. a little face-lift for Earth Day.

Post 10262 conducted a belated Earth Day community service “mission” on May 16 with their annual spring cleanup of Hoover Ave. The operation, originally slated for Earth Day weekend, was postponed twice in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions and inclement weather.

The “Cleanup Brigade” divided into teams of two or three and spent the morning collecting trash and litter along Hoover Avenue from Hwy B to Hwy HH, according to a news release from the Post.

Members of the VFW team include included Scott Halverson, Norb Strasser, Mike Zynda, John Herek, Ron Stoflet, Guy Mockler, Ray Gauthier, Darrell Berg, and VFW Auxiliary member Debbie Manthey.

Plover VFW Post and Auxiliary have logged a combined 4,510 community service hours to date this year.

Earth Day was established in Wisconsin on April 22, 1970.
