TOHATCHI, N.M., April 24, 2014
Community members from Tohatchi and Twin Lakes walked along their stretch of road on U.S. Highway 491 armed with black trash bags and gloves picking up trash for Earth Day.
"We're always stressing walk in beauty. Why stress it? Look at our land," Cecil Pinto said, from the Tohatchi Veterans Organization, as he pointed to trash along U.S. 491 just past Tohatchi High School. "You'd be surprised how many beer bottles we've collected."
Tohatchi Veteran Organization Vice Commander Manuel Shirleson said they were picking up trash on Tuesday because, "We're always trying to help out the community."
