ROXBURY, NJ - Doing service projects together is one way Boy Scouts keep their promise "to help other people" and a group service project is a bigger way to do that. When Scouts are giving service, they're learning to work together with others to do something good for our community.
Thirteen Scouts and four Scout leaders from Roxbury's Troop 54 braved rainy conditions Saturday morning to clean up about a mile of Mill Road and a quarter mile of Little Lane. Troop 54 has been cleaning Mill Road twice a year for 16 years under Roxbury Township's Adpot-a-Spot program.
The Mill Road Cleanup was organized in 1999 by Troop 54 Leader Richard Preuss. This time around there was more garbage than normal; The Scouts filled about four garbage bags with garbage and about two bags with recyclable items.
Troop 54 has been serving Roxbury’s youth since 1920 helping to build the future leaders of the country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.
