Webelos clean up Nike site in Shelton

Shelton’s Cub Scout Pack 28 met at Nike recreation facility for a “Clean Sweep” of the park and fields. More than 20 Tiger and Webelo cubs, plus parents, attended the event.

The cubs found a broken TV, an old tire, two mailboxes, a carpet, and a wooden tag sale sign among the cans, bottles and other rubbish cleaned from the park. More than a dozen bags of trash were collected.

“Some of my scouts that participated in the clean sweep for the first time could not believe how much trash was found.” said Medha Papadimitriou, Webelo Den leader. “They thought the clean sweep should be done more often, maybe every month.”

The pack meets monthly at Mohegan School on Friday nights.
