Adopt a Road – In Memory of Marlene Ellis MacEwan

September 29, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The picture above is of Gary and Ina Feldmann with Marlene – doing one of their favorite things – tasting wines.


We now have an official date approved by Washington County to do the first Adopt A Road trash pickup in memory of Marlene Ellis MacEwan!  Marlene was an active member of the Oregon Region Porsche Club for many years.  She was the social chairperson for many of those years and knew everyone!  Marlene was tragically killed in one of her 911s in March 2017.

We have adopted a road near where her accident occurred.   It is a 2.1 mile section of Scholls-Sherwood Rd – from Roy Rogers to Stark Rd. (both sides!).

Gary Feldmann is organizing this event.  It will be on Sunday, September 29th and he needs about 12 volunteers.  He would like to meet at 9:00am at the outer edge of the Safeway parking lot at the corner of Hwy 99 and Roy Rogers in Sherwood (20685 SE Roy Rogers Rd, Sherwood Oregon 97140) for meeting to review rules and get forms signed and then carpool to the site.  Please see the map at the bottom of this page.

Please contact Gary at feldgary@comcast.net before Monday, September 23 if you have questions and/or are interested in volunteering. This will help Gary get the necessary equipment from Washington County.   Gary will provide details to those signed up on what to expect and what you will need to bring.  Washington County supplies the warning signs, safety vests, trash bags and trash picking devices.

The county requires that participants must be at least 12 years old.   All participants are required to sign a liability release.  Ages 12-17 are required to have a minor liability release signed by the parent/guardian.  All participants must wear a hi-vis vest (provided) at all times while on the road shoulder. No ear buds, headphones, alcohol, drugs etc. Participants need to be alert to and stay away from traffic and refrain from turning their back to approaching traffic.  Please wear long pants, closed shoes and bring leather gloves. Also prepare for weather of the day with sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, rain gear etc.

Gary will have a supply of bottled water and snack bars on hand.

Lets do this for Mar!
