Barrigada Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Adopts Highway

February 21, 2015 - Guam's Lieutenant Governor, Ray Tenorio, unveiled a new sign on Purple Heart Highway (Route 8).


A new "Roadway Adoption Program" was introduced to help with the Island wide beautification task force. The Barrigada Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints adopted a .6 mile stretch of road near the church.


Over 40 missionaries and ward members, wearing "Mormon Helping Hands" yellow vests, were on location for the unveiling of the sign and the clean up.

In this video, Mr. Tenorio addressed the group about how picking up trash helps everyone in the community and makes it nicer.

Bishop Davis directed and organized us into groups to help the clean up efforts be more efficient. He also said that we have agreed to cleanup the road at least quarterly. 

During the next 90 minutes, everyone started picking up the trash along both sides of the road. 


Two groups began at each end of the .6 mile stretch of highway.




Many people driving by would honk their horns, happy that people were helping to make Guam a more beautiful place.


When finished, the four groups met at the Barrigada Church to dispose of the trash.

The dumpster was overflowing until these young missionaries jumped in


Another great day of service to the community.
