For our large contributions to general debauchery, we here at Ambrosia also try to bring some positive change to the world at large (conceal your surprise-- we're good people, I swear it!!). In a previous post, I mentioned our adopted school in Bonao. One of our more recent initiatives is participation in the local Adopt-A-Highway program.
Let's get honest for a minute here-- Adopt-A-Highway is undeniably not the most glamourous or rewarding volunteer work. For those who may not know about the program, it basically involves paying the state for the privilege of cleaning up a stretch of road in your community. Now, I know I said we like to give back, but let me clarify that "like" and "enjoy" are not necessarily synonymous. Nobody really *enjoys* cleaning up other people's garbage (except for Jake, who, as our eco-enthusiast and IT manager, is used to that sort of thing), but every 3 months, we don our fluorescent yellow vests and take to the streets like some geeky silicon valley chain gang.
Ah, September in Rochester. As the summertime subtly slips into its colorful autumn attire, those of us who will inevitably be spending the upcoming months under a prosaic icy white blanket are squeezing in a few sunny last-hurrahs. For a little change of pace, I have been staying put and enjoying the late-season Western New York scenery.
While my own summer wanderings have seemingly come to a halt, some of my coworkers are still following the travel bug. Evan and his family recently took a weekend trip down to Allegany State Park where they befriended the area wildlife-- including a black bear with a late night hankering for cheese curds! John took the long Labor Day weekend to adventure up the Atlantic, hitting up Massachusetts and Maine along the way. Though he was fighting a cold, John made the most of his trip to the eastern seaboard, returning well-rested, and with a cooler full of unwitting lobster (mmmm tasty ignorance).
Through a bit of Jedi mind tricks, and a heavy dash of guilt, Ambrosia's IT guru Jake Cebula had convinced the heliophobic crew that it was time we gave a bit back to the community. He contacted the Adopt a Highway program here in Monroe county and locked in our fate as cleaners of our fair city, if only a small 2 mile portion of it. The crew was all ready to roll, but first it seems the world of trash clean up can't be rushed into, for first we had to sit through an enlightening few hour safety course. (ProTip: If you find a dead body don't touch it. If you find a weapon, don't touch it.)
Since that class, the crew have taken a few days from their busy schedules and have managed to rid the roadside of litter, (all under the watchful eye of Warden Cebula). The road is looking great, a few of us got some tans, and what is really exciting is that we finally have our name on the sign for all the hard work we have and will continue to do!
