Members of the Florence Elks Lodge #1020 met on Saturday morning, Aug.16, to participate in the SCDOT Adopt-a-Highway program. The Florence Elks have adopted Beltline Drive and Jody Road. They collected 12 bags of trash, a tire and an automotive bumper. The Florence Elks remain the SCDOT Florence County winner and clean their adopted roads five times a year. They ask the public to help Keep Florence Beautiful by disposing of trash properly. To learn more about the Elks, contact the Florence Elks Lodge at email@example.com.
