From the Citizen's Campaign Call to Service Summit committee:
The Borough Council recently adopted a  resolution creating a "Call to Service Summit," an annual event to recruit and educate a new generation of involved citizens (Metuchen Summit Flyer_with Speakers.pdf). Metuchen is the first municipality in Middlesex County to officially adopt the resolution and join the statewide "Jersey Call to Service," a public service initiative to inspire citizens to participate in the leadership of their communities and reverse the tide of government waste and corruption.
The Call to Service Summit is scheduled for Saturday, March 20th, 10 am - 12:30pm at Metuchen Borough Hall and will  feature Mayor Vahalla and members of the borough council, William Lovett of the Metuchen Edison Woodbridge YMCA, and Chairman of the Citizens' Campaign Harry Pozycki.  Residents will have a chance to meet their elected officials, and learn about the leadership opportunities on boards and commissions, such as the Emergency Management commission, the Cable TV & Technology Advisory Committee, the Board of Health, Recreation Commission, Cultural Arts Commission, Development Commission, Planning & Zoning Board, as well as other non-profit organizations serving the community.
Citizens' Campaign member and Metuchen resident Grace Shackney said, "The Metuchen Call to Service Summit will provide an opportunity for residents to learn about the many opportunities for residents to improve the community and serve on a variety of boards and commissions." William Lovett, President of the Metuchen Edison Woodbridge YMCA said, "The YMCA is proud to co-sponsor the Metuchen Call to Service Summit and applauds the Borough for inviting more citizens to serve the community."
Metuchen Mayor Vahalla said, "Metuchen citizens have, time and time again, displayed their deep-rooted commitment to public service. The Call to Service Summit will be an opportunity to inspire the Borough's newer residents with the same Metuchen public service spirit."
The Citizens' Campaign is leading a New Jersey Call to Service to shine a light on public service leadership opportunities, which while taking little time allow regular citizens to play a significant role in shaping the policies of their community.
Admission is free and open to the public. There is limited seating so attendees are asked to RSVP to Grace Shackney at (732) 548-9798 x.6.
