This year’s Festival and Ducky Race will be held on Saturday, June 9, from 12 Noon to 4 pm at the Passaic River Park, 151 Springfield Avenue, Berkeley Heights.
 
FREE ADMISSION!  Enjoy seeing friends and neighbors and coming together as a community.
 
The Rubber Ducky Race will be the featured event. Thousands of tiny yellow plastic duckies will “swim” their little hearts out, coming down the Passaic River in their quest to be the first to the finish line for their “parents.” (This is a “green” event. All ducks are removed from the river, cleaned, and donated to kids summer camps.)
 
Ducky adoption tickets are just $5 each and available throughout Berkeley Heights on weekends up to the Festival date. (A limited number of ducks will be available for adoption on Festival Day.)
 
The race has an outstanding array of top prizes:
  • Grand Prize: 4 Box Seats behind home plate at a Yankees home game ($1,100 Value)
  • 2nd Prize: 12 Monthly Flower Arrangements by Hall’s Garden Center ($500 Value)
  • 3rd Prize: 50-in Samsung Flat-Screen HDTV ($500 Value)
  • 4th Prize: 3-Month Family Membership at the Berkeley Heights Y ($368 Value)

SANDY HOOK, NJ – The Berkeley Heights Rotary Club and friends showed up on Saturday morning, April 21, 2018, and served vittles for the more than 850 volunteers who came out to clean the beaches there of litter of all sorts.
 
The Rotary Club has been doing this for over 15 consecutive years, in cooperation with Clean Ocean Action, the semi-annual cleanup of New Jersey beaches known as “Beach Sweep.” In the course of the morning, cleanup volunteers plowed through one thousand hot dogs, gallons and gallons of iced tea and water, and ten 50-pack boxes of chips and nachos—all food and drinks are provided free to these sandy stalwarts by the Berkeley Heights Rotary Club.
This year’s Beach Sweep was a huge success. The “sweepers” at Sandy Hook removed vast amounts of litter. The “top 5” were: over 9,400 discarded pieces of plastic, including a major number of plastic water bottles; 6,580 candy and food wrappers; 5,989 bottle caps and coffee cup lids; and over 7,442 straws, stirrers, and Styrofoam cups; plus one Styrofoam chunk of dock material measuring 5’x3’x2’! All this and much more in less than three hours’ time!  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
On Saturday, April 21 the Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights again participated in the annual Beach Sweep at Sandy Hook State Park.  The Rotary Club prepared and served one-thousand hot dogs with chips and drinks to the masses of high school students who took part in this annual service project.  Thanks to all that helped out.  It was a beautiful day!
