Participants never know what they will turn up during the community-wide cleanup held in Towson twice a year.

On Saturday, at the Towson American Legion Post 22, the 75 volunteers pulled a circa 1950 Ford V-6 motor from the stream, unearthed a tire graveyard with more than 100 tires, and discovered a makeshift living space with a bed, firepit and chairs in a wooded area behind the building.

The cleanup project at the legion post was one of 27 conducted Oct. 19 throughout Towson and sponsored jointly by the Towson Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations and Towson University.
