Community Service June 20th – Build a Playground, Get a Hat!

Help build a playground – and be among the first recipients of our brand-new, high-quality, tasteful-orange, PA3-logo-embellished, volunteer-appreciation baseball caps!

On Saturday, June 20, from 8:00am-12:00noon, PA3 members and their families and friends are invited to be part of the effort, coordinated by Rachel Riedl *08, to build a playground in Hopewell Township. Jobs are available at a range of skill levels, from novice to expert. Children are welcome; child care will be provided for ages 3-9, children 10-13 may work with a parent, and ages 14 and up may work independently.

Volunteers are asked to check in at the gazebo in Gazebo Park, 1 Columbia Avenue, Hopewell NJ, 08525, at the corner of Columbia and Greenwood Avenues. Please identify yourself as a PA3 volunteer so you’ll be directed to the location where our group will be working.

Be sure to sign up in advance at so we’ll know who’s coming, and so you’ll receive parking information, updates and reminders. Please include “PA3” in the suggestion box at the bottom so Rachel can identify alumni volunteers. You are welcome to sign up for any and all shifts – but the morning shift on June 20 is where you’ll meet up with fellow alums and get your hat.

In recognition of the PA3 Community Service Committee's work to promote community spirit among area alumni, the Alumni Council awarded us a grant to fund the purchase of the hats. A condition of the grant is that we provide photos of hat-clad alumni at work on group projects, and this event will be our first opportunity to display our spirit in living color. If you wear orange gear too, so much the better. We hope to see you in Hopewell!
