The Lancaster FAIRWAY Crew Picked Up 30 Bags of Litter from Hwy 30

We're very proud of our volunteers, Pam, George, Cheyenne and Ken, for picking up 30 bags of litter from Highway 30 on Saturday.  The weather was nice for us and it was a good morning workout.  Our little adopted stretch of highway is already looking better.

A great big thanks to our volunteers!

The objective of Fairway’s Certified Military Residential Specialist certification program is to train and equip real estate professionals to handle with care the home purchase needs of active duty and former military clients. Attendees will learn about VA mortgage programs and acquire the unique skills needed to help active military and veterans in their quest for homeownership.
