Leawood Rotary Club works on city beautification

Leawood Rotary Club members worked on city beautification with pop-up trash events to pick up litter along city streets on warmer winter days.

Members would pick up trash while walking their dogs or gather in small groups to target busy streets and intersections. Club President Lisa May said “it’s amazing how many crushed cans and mini-liquor bottles we find.”
