Millville, New Jersey - November 2018

-Millville's Annual Snowflake plunge – During Millville’s Annual Snowflake plunge in February of 2018, Millville Eagles #1836 sent their Queen of the Plunge and Creature of the Third Cove to Union Lake, and was able to raise $2,500 for Susan G. Komen Foundation. Following the event, all attendees were invited to the Aerie for refreshments. 

- Millville Eagles #1836 hosted the City of Millville Parks & Recreation Department for a community clean-up in our neighborhood in May. Working in pairs, approximately 50 people volunteered and removed 80 bags of trash, 30 tires, 15 TVs, one washing machine and a few shopping carts. They opened their doors for all participants for food and refreshment throughout the day, connected with their neighbors, and gave prizes for most trash collected. 

- Clean Communities is a New Jersey State Program where volunteer organizations and individuals may volunteer to clean specific, targeted areas designated by the city of Millville. Grant money is available and volunteers can received up to $500 for their participation. In August, 16 members of Millville Eagles #1836 volunteered for this program and cleaned a large, vacant area of a local industrial park. The program coordinator said he had never seen a group so organized and committed and awarded the Aerie the full amount. 

- The city of Millville holds an annual scarecrow contest during the month of October where groups, individuals and businesses may purchase a frame from the City and create a scarecrow. The scarecrows are then placed on lamp posts in our downtown for all to admire and cast their vote. Millville Eagles #1836 won Best in Show and was awarded a plaque at recent City Commission meeting. 

- Millville Aerie #1836 was recognized by Millville City Commission for their monthly Making A Difference Program. The city of Millville recognizes Organizations/Programs working to improve the quality of life within the city.
