On Saturday, October 1, 2011, members of the Bowie/Mitchellville (MD) Alumni Chapter (BMAC) gathered on Rt 450 in Bowie, MD to participate in the chapter’s Adopt-A-Highway cleanup efforts. Rt 450 is a highly trafficked area. The city’s high school, library, and recreation center are just a few of the places located on this particular stretch of road. These places are all very vital to the function of the community. The brothers of Bowie/Mitchellville (MD) Alumni Chapter beautify the road at least for times a year to make sure that the grounds are free of litter.
