Nearly 400 certificates with patches and seven special awards are all ready to be handed out this evening at the annual Clean Sweep Recognition event at City Hall at 7:00 pm. There's one box of Girl Scout certificates, one box of Cub Scout certificates, and the third box is Boy Scouts and assorted non-Scouts. The patches are custom, and the Mayor signs each and every certificate.
When everyone checks in, they get a raffle ticket for a door prize. They can then proceed on to the auditorium and check out the door prizes, which are given out at the end of the event. If your number is called, you go on up to the table and pick whatever you want.
This year we have assorted candy, 3 baseball caps (Yankees, Red Sox, and Rec Path), a DVD of the Hobbit, a colored clay art set, a portable speaker for gadgets like iPods, several super bouncy balls, colored bubbles, and there will be a few more items added later on.
And of course there will be refreshments. We have eight 50-packs of Munchkins and two dozen assorted donuts, as well as several cases of water to wash it all down. Should be a good time for all.
