Save the Dates - 2 Summertime Hazlet Clean Communities Opportunities

posted Jun 27, 2017, 11:39 AM by James Borg   [ updated Jun 28, 2017, 6:23 AM ]
We have two Hazlet Clean Communities events scheduled during the Summer. This should allow most of the Troop to participate in at least one of these events.
  1. July 29 (Saturday) 8AM-9AM at Natco Park (419 Middle Rd, Hazlet, NJ 07730). We will be cleaning in the vicinity of the entrance to the park. We will meet under the solar panels at Raritan High School.
  2. August 12 (Saturday) 8AM-9AM at Veteran's Park (1776 Union Ave., Hazlet, NJ 07730). This follows the completion of Hazlet's Summer Camp program. We will be cleaning the park area.
We need to have a minimum of 40 attendees to continue to participate in these Clean Communities Events.
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 hour of community service.

We will bet meeting in the location parking lots at 7:50AM. 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.

Service Hours and SOTY
This will count towards Conservation Related Service Hours, a new 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 this event will earn the SOTY award. Scouts must participate for the full time the clean up is running to be credited.

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.
