Community Service Diary - Boys Park

Last Friday morning our Community Service Crew Supervisors and offenders cleaned Boys Park in Newark's Central Ward. Later in the afternoon, the rest of the Newark Community Solutions family, which includes the Newark Youth Court, joined some of our community partners and volunteers in an End-Of-Summer Field Day. So we loosened our ties (well actually only three of us had on ties) put on our sneakers and hula hoop-ed, egg-spoon raced, and tug-of-war-ed the afternoon away. More importantly, we spent an afternoon with some truly AWESOME kids and enjoyed a clean, safe public space. How about that! A great day made possible by spirited volunteers and court-mandated community service!!
