  • Gettysburg Camping Trip October 26-28
    Our next camping trip is coming up quickly!  By popular demand we will be going to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

    We will be hiking the battlefield and learning a lot of history 
    We will be camping at the Artillery Ridge campground,  We will need a pretty firm count of attendees (Scouts and parents) this Wednesday to provide the camp

    The permission slip for this trip is attached.  We will begin collecting these this Wednesday 

    I hope you can all attend this great trip!

    I would also like to remind everyone that it is each scout's responsibility to bring a cup, bowl and knife and fork on every camping trip.  Using reusable items is much more responsible than relying on disposable paper goods. 

    If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me

    HOWELL TOWNSHIP CLEAN COMMUNITIES

    "INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP"

    NOVEMBER 3, 2018

    Howell Township Clean Communities will be hosting our annual

    "Clean Sweep", November 3rd 2018

    This year’s cleanup is in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup.

    Last year’s event was a huge success and we are expecting an even bigger turnout this year. Volunteers will meet at Town Hall at 9:30am for registration. Groups will be given a designated road to clean conducive to the children’s age along with gloves, bags and safety vests. Groups will return at approximately 12:30pm for a volunteer appreciation lunch.

    This is a program that helps to keep our neighborhoods "clean and green". The Clean Communities Program is looking for scouts, families, sport teams, church groups, business’; anyone who would like to volunteer just a couple of hours to make a difference in their neighborhood. All are encouraged to get involved within their community to keep a "clean and green" neighborhood. We are cleaning roads that are heavily traveled and hit hard with trash. Clean Communities is also interested in businesses cleaning and possibly adopting a jug handle.

    All interested parties should contact Laurie Dunwoody at Town Hall (938- 4500 x2452) or by email ldunwoody@twp.howell.nj.us.

    Please register by October 20, 2018

    For the Adopt-a-Road groups, please make arrangements to have supplies picked up earlier in the week. Supplies can be dropped off at Town Hall after your cleanup. Thanks for your cooperation.
