The final weekend of October is here and there isn’t a major natural disaster in sight! Let’s see what’s on the schedule around town.
Taking part in the annual Operation Take Back New Jersey medicine disposal day, the Washington Township Police Department will host a drop-off location on Saturday, Oct. 26.
The initiative is open to all residents looking to dispose of their unused, unwanted, and expired medicine. Syringes and other sharp instruments will not be accepted.
Operation Take Back is a statewide initiative organized to encourage residents to rid their homes of various medications to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands and to protect the environment.
The Washington Township Police Department is located at 1 East Springtown Road. The drop-off will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The annual Stuff the Bus fundraiser to help the Washington Township Food Pantry rolls into town on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The bus will be located in front of the Long Valley Presbyterian Church, and residents can swing by anytime during those hours to leave donations.
Take some time to catch a Saturday matinee this week as well. This time the show is on the gridiron.
Coming off two straight wins and improving to 4-2 on the season, the West Morris Wolfpack football team will host Parsippany Hills, currently ranked No. 2 in the county by the Star Ledger.
Parsippany Hills is 5-1 and looking to bounce back from a devastating 33-0 shutout loss to Delbarton. Game time is set for 1 p.m. at Wolfpack Stadium.
