Gresham Optimists recycle campaign signs

It's finally over! The US 2008 election has come to an historic close by electing the first African-American president Barack Obama. Some close races in our states and counties are still waiting to find out who will go to Washington D.C. in January as Congressmen and women and Senators. What needs to happen next? According to the Gresham Optimist Club now is the time to clean up the signs from our yards and our roads and get back to the business of serving kids and community.

The Gresham Optimist Club and the City of Gresham, Oregon have launched a recycling program for campaign collateral. Campaign signs are dimantled and recycled for free and the wooden stakes are donated to the Gresham Optimists who then redistribute them to needy residents for firewood.
