ROSELLE, NJ - Many came out on Saturday to volunteer their time to help with the Camp Letico renovation project. The Roselle-Roselle Park Rotary Club donated $3,000 and worked along side other volunteers to restore Roselle Girl Scout’s “Camp Letico" to its former glory. The Rotary presented the camp to the Roselle Girl Scout Council during the 1954-55 Rotary year.

Rotary members Keyanna Jones, Lila Montoya, Scott Wands, Roselle Fire Chief Paul Mucha, Milt Woodruff, Bob Zeglarski, and other members along with the Girl Scouts from Roselle and Roselle Park, representatives from Abraham Clark’s Jr. R.O.T.C. program, and many others joined in on the work detail. 

The outside of the building was scrapped and repainted, while new drywall was put up on the inside of the building. The project is still under way, and TAPinto Roselle/Roselle Park will continue to follow this project until competition.
