To celebrate ‘Make a Difference Day,’ the VFW Auxiliary #2411 joined forces with the Las Animas Schools to clean up one mile of highway just east of Las Animas on Friday, Oct. 20. The VFW Auxiliary #2411 adopted Highway 50 from the Arkansas River Bridge for one mile east through the Spruce Up Colorado program several years ago. Eleven kids and four adults worked hard to clean up the trash and collected several bags of trash. It was a beautiful sunny fall day, and everyone had a good time making a difference.
