Let’s get ready for GARDEN SEASON! Volunteers are needed to tend and harvest the garden this summer. Please contact Jonathan Aragones at NYS for details.

NYCAAP Orientations – August 6 and 20 at 6 pm. Training sessions on August 24. Please call if interested and would like to find out more about these sessions.

Labor Day Parade – Committee meeting on Monday, August 6, at 7 pm.


Opportunities For Community Service Hours!

Monday through Saturday, 9 to 11 am, at Plymouth Hall, any time you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Our projects include a farmers’ market garden, a wildlife habitat garden for a daycare center, and a nature trail for a local retirement community, with the possibility of more projects added when we get your ideas.

We need your help with the gardens, starting from the planning, then to the planting, and finally to the maintaining. You will learn about vegetable gardening and produce marketing, flower garden designing, and wildlife habitat observation gardens.

You may also be interested in assisting the 4H garden club. The 4H club consists of elementary and middle school students who happen to idolize high school students and would be thrilled to work with you. Besides working in the garden, the 4H clubs work with animals and learn about Newtown’s diverse environment. To volunteer, please call Jonathan Aragones at NYS at 270-4335.


See you in August – Watch for dates! If interested in joining either Youth Advisory Board (High School or Middle School) or NYCAAP (Newtown Youth Creating AIDS Awareness for Peers), call Youth Services for information.

All programs will take place at Newtown Youth Services, 41-A Main Street, unless noted. To register, or for further information, please call 270-4335.

Comments are open. Be civil.
