(MOORESTOWN) – In honor of Earth Day celebrated in April, Senator Troy Singleton will partner with the Moorestown Rotary Lunch Club for a park beautification event. This monthly “Serving with Senator Singleton” community service event will take place at Frank Fullerton Memorial Park, corner of Zelley Ave and Linden St, Moorestown, to Saturday April 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (tentative rain date Sun.

The senator and a group of volunteers will be asked to perform various tasks necessary to prepare the park, such as planting, mulching or painting. Anyone interested in volunteering can sign up here:

“The theme of this year’s Earth Day is investing in our planet. Clearly, one of the best investments we can make is in our local parks, which are important social, recreational and environmental treasures in our communities,” said Senator Singleton. “I would like to thank the Moorestown Rotary Lunch Club of Moorestown for allowing our volunteers to partner with you in your mission to make Frank Fullerton Memorial Park even more beautiful for the enjoyment of residents.”

The Moorestown Rotary Lunch Club is a network of local community, business and professional leaders who tackle relevant social causes to positively change lives and build goodwill and peace locally, nationally and internationally. The Rotary Lunch Club of Moorestown has over 80 members who meet weekly for fellowship and hosts a series of Fullerton Park Beautification Days throughout the month of April.

Each month, Senator Singleton recruits a team of volunteers to help with a particular community service project. The event at Fullerton Memorial Park will be the Senator’s 41st “Serving with Senator Singleton” event since becoming a state senator in 2018. Past volunteer efforts include: indoor and outdoor clean-up days, animal welfare projects, clothing and supplies, painting projects and setting up community events and staffing. To date, over 1,600 hours have been donated by volunteers to local community service projects.

“I am guided by the idea that service is the rent we pay to live on this earth. These monthly community service events have been a priority since I became a state senator and they will continue to be. They brought together people from different backgrounds, ages and perspectives for a common purpose – to serve their community,” Singleton said.
