Hazlet Clean Communities Clean Ups - June 8 & 15

posted May 13, 2019, 8:36 AM by James Borg   [ updated Jun 13, 2019, 9:47 AM ]
We have two Hazlet Clean Communities opportunities coming up on Saturday June 8 and Saturday June 15.

If we have at least 50 participants each for these two clean ups we will raise an additional $1,000 for the Troop with just 2 hrs of work.

This will count towards Conservation Related Service Hours, a requirement for rank advancement. This event will also be used as a substitute SOTY event. This means any Scouts that are short a SOTY event who attend a Hazlet Clean Communities event will earn the SOTY award. Scouts must participate for the full time the clean up is running to be credited.


June 8 (Saturday) 7:45AM-9AM at Natco Park (Raritan High School). We will meet in the High School parking lot under the Solar Panels near the entrance to Natco Park.

June 15 (Saturday) 7:45AM-9AM at Leocadia Park (39 Leocadia Ct., Hazlet, NJ 07730). We will be cleaning Leocadia Park and the surrounding area.

Having a respectable turnout for these events ensures that we can continue to participate in them.
Please email Mr.Borg if you will be able to participate. Include the full name of all those who will be participating in the cleanup; parents, siblings, and friends are welcome.

This is an opportunity to raise money for your Troop while assisting Hazlet Clean Communities with 1-1.5 hours of community service per event.

The township will provide all materials for the cleanup (you should bring your own work gloves if you have them).
Don't forget to bring a filled water bottle.

If you do not comply with these safety rules, you will not be able to participate in the cleanup.

This Cleanup Helps to Raise Funds for Your Troop
This is part of a Clean Communities Grant that will provide us with $10 per participant for up to 50 participants, with a maximum of $500 earned. These funds will be deposited into the Troop account to offset Troop expenses.

This Community Service Project is Open to Non-Scouts
These hours can count towards National Honor Society, religious or any other community service hour requirements.

Please share this information with your friends and family.
