Matawan Events: Play Ball-----Plant Flowers

Good News Folks, Opening Day ceremonies for the new Softball Field will be on Sat., April 19, 2008 at 8:45am. Coffee and donuts will be served.

Kudos to all the people who worked so hard to make this happen. Hope to see you there.

Matawan 4-H Club will be planting flowers at Joe Pennilpede Park on Jackson Street Sat. April 19, 2008 at 11am. Starbucks will be donating coffee for the volunteers. The 4-H Club website at myspace.com shows photos and commentary of the children at the Park last Sat. cleaning up.

In the future, perhaps the 4-H could send a representative to Borough Council meetings to encourage volunteers and donations. Sorry we didn't know about last Sat. clean up otherwise we would have posted it. Good to see Councilman Mullaney there to help. Wish he would have advised the rest of the Council so they, as well as residents, would have had the opportunity to help. Special thanks goes to the children and parents for their hard work.

We encourage residents to donate and/or volunteer to help this worthwhile organization.

Hi! Thanks for mentioning our planting event coming up this Saturday. I would like to add that there will be a park dedication at 2:00 as well. Everyone in the community is invited out for both events.

I actually did come out and talk briefly about the park project at the Matawan city council meeting last month. Councilman Mullaney and his wife were kind enough to get involved and have put in many hours of both hard work and networking for the 4-H. Michael Mullaney, from Recreation has also helped us out.

If anyone would like to find out more about the project, they can read more or contact me at our website: www.myspace.com/matawanaberdeen4h.

It is a pleasure to support such a worthwhile cause. It is wonderful that Councilman Mullaney, his wife and son have helped out. They have become very active in the Community these last few years and are a welcome addition to the volunteers of this Borough.

Knew someone came to meeting and spoke about Earth Day. Apologies, if we missed mention of last Saturday's date at the park at the Borough Council meeting.

Thanks for the website, we shall post it.
