The Canal Winchester Lions Club took to the streets July 23 to clean up the interchange at U.S. Route 33 and Gender Road.   The city of Canal Winchester thanked the Canal Winchester Lions Club for their volunteer efforts.

“The Lions Club was able to gather 24 bags of trash from the interchange location,” said Matt Peoples, Canal Winchester director of public works. “This was a very big help to our mowing crew.”

The Canal Winchester Lions Club has been involved in community beautification and humanitarian projects within the Canal Winchester community since 1939.
