Thank You to Pack 1980 Cub Scouts who Participated in the Cub Day of Service at Spruce Run

Posted on Oct 3 2015 - 8:45pm

Our Hunterdon Arrowhead District reports that 36 Cub Scouts and siblings, along with their parents, turned out for a blustery afternoon of litter clean-up at Spruce Run Reservoir. All together, 70 full trash bags of garbage and recycling was collected. The park was definitely in need of a clean-up project and we are thankful for the Pack 1980 scouts (and family members) who took the time to make a difference.  Thanks to Zachary Barckholtz, Luke Bielen, Noah Bielen, Christian Lechner, Harrison Marr, and Michael Wentzel.
