If you were driving along Highway Eleven in front of WDAM-TV Saturday morning, you might have seen some familiar faces cleaning up along that roadway.  

Station manager Joe Sciortino, news director Nick Ortego and other employees from news, sales and other departments at the station picked up trash and debris.

It was part of WDAM's participation in the Adopt-a-Highway program.

The cleanup included both sides of the highway for about one mile around the station.
