Workers at Cass stacked junked cars in preparation for the smashing machine due to arrive soon. The Town truck and a State Road end-loader are being used to collect and pile the cars.
Cooperating in the drive to get rid of the accumulation of junked cars in our county are the Town of Durbin, Town of Cass, Bryant Motors, Howard Hevener, Neil Snyder, Murl Chestnut, June Buzzard, Fisher’s Garage and Ralph Dunbrack. Any other community, group or individual who will help get 20 or more cars together will be making a big contribution to the beauty of our county and everyone is urged to get busy. The salvage crew was delayed because of rain, but will soon be crushing cars. Don’t let this opportunity pass.
