NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The New Canaan High School Service League of Boys, or SLOBs, will hold its first general meeting of the school year at 2 p.m. Saturday in the New Canaan High School cafeteria.
The club fosters the parent-son relationship in a philanthropic organization committed to community service and leadership development.
The year’s first speaker will be Dave Hunt, a New Canaan resident and retired businessman who volunteers his time in community leadership positions. Hunt will talk about volunteerism in New Canaan.
Since its inception in 2004, SLOBs members have volunteered over 26,000 hours to benefit New Canaan and Fairfield County philanthropies. SLOBs currently has 245 boys enrolled and is the largest club at New Canaan High School.
Membership is open to New Canaan High School boys in grades nine through 11. They are required to volunteer a minimum of 10 hours and attend general membership meetings four times throughout each school year.
All boys must sign up with a parent, and parents are required to volunteer a total of five hours and attend three meetings per year.
After the general meeting, SLOBs can earn one service hour by working with the New Canaan Beautification League on a back-to-school fall cleanup.
This cleanup will beautify the entrance to New Canaan High School where the Memorial Garden is located – directly across from the front doors.
A half-hour credit is earned for donating the mums and an hour of credit is earned for helping to plant them.
