The Bill Childress Elementary School Mother-Daughter/Father-Son program put on its safety vests and work gloves on Saturday as part of the Village of Vinton's Adopt-A-River/Texas Waterway Clean-Up event.
Dozens of students and their parents helped clean a 2-mile stretch of the river. The event has two purposes: to keep Vinton clean and safe for all residents, and to instill in students the notion of community service.
Way to go BCE! Vinton is a more beautiful community because of your efforts!
