SUMMIT, NJ - The COVID-19 pandemic curtailed Summit's Earth Day activities, but Summit's Boy Scout Troop 67 -- knowing that the work still needed to get done -- enlisted the help of their families and, together, recently completed two simultaneous service projects in Summit.
The Scouts and their families went to Martins Brook Park to clean up litter that tends to accumulate in that area, while a second group headed downtown and refreshed the tree wells around the central business district with mulch.
Meeting virtually since March, the projects afforded the Scouts a welcome opportunity to gather together in small groups, get some exercise, and be of service. The Troop recently resumed outdoor activities -- completing a high ropes course in August -- and was set to embark on a whitewater rafting trip, which unfortunately had to be scrapped due to weather issues. The Scouts are, however, looking forward to their next camping trek in the upcoming weeks.
