A ceremony recognizing the 612th Air and Space Operations Center’s contributions to Tucson’s Adopt-a-Street program was held here, June 6.

The 612th AOC adopted Kolb Road (from Golf Links to Escalante Road) in March of 2012 and have since performed more the 220 hours of regular cleanups.

In addition, the organization has also taken on the responsibility of reporting adverse road conditions and alerting officials of any emergency needs.

“I just want to say that we are so grateful for the work that you’ve done,” said Jean Hickman, Adopt-a-Park coordinator for Tucson Clean & Beautiful. “You’ve helped the Transportation Department, who has been adversely affected by recent budget cuts, allowing them to redirect their focus to maintaining and fixing the roads.”

Shirley Stott, Tucson City Council Member from Ward 14, also thanked the 612th AOC members for their dedication to the community.

“I salute you and thank you for your double service,” Stott said. “You not only do your mission to keep us safe from bad guys…you also mix and mingle with us in the community to help keep Tucson beautiful.”

At the end of the ceremony, Senior Airman Benjamin Honken, 612th AOC, renewed the organizations’ pledge to serve the Tucson’s Adopt-A-Street program by signing an additional “contract.”

Tucson Clean & Beautiful celebrates this 279th adoption and is proud to sponsor the Adopt-A-Park and Public Areas Program, providing community service opportunities which unite public and private sectors in making Tucson a cleaner and safer place.
