The Nutley CROP Walk to help alleviate hunger will take place on Sunday, October 20 at 1:00 p.m., with registration at 12:30.  The walk will be held in the Nutley Oval by the high school.  It is a wonderful family service project.  Walkers commit to completing the walk – rain or shine – and collect money from sponsors before or after they walk.  We hope this will once again be a large community event to help people in need around the world, with 25% of it returning to aid our local community.  If you are interested in being a Walker, please see or contact Rick DeKovessey at 973-667-2404 or register online for the Nutley walk at www.crophungerwalk.org.  “Ending Hunger One Step at a Time.”
