Staples Students Are Real SLOBs

While you and I greeted May with hot chocolate and a warm fire, dozens of Staples High School boys (and their parents) were outside, working.


The school’s Service League Of Boys (SLOBs) annual service day included weeding, planting, mulching, painting, cleaning and garbage pick-up. They fanned out to town beaches and parks, A Better Chance Glendary House, and many more spots throughout the town.


SLOBs’ service day is big. But the boys do plenty throughout the year too. Since September alone, they’ve volunteered at over 100 community events, here and in neighboring towns — providing over 4,000 hours of service.


SLOBs like these are pretty neat, huh?

    Every year, the SLOBs help clean up the Westport Mini Maker Faire. A day of thousands of people in Westport leaves a lot of clean up work. Each year, their participation and efforts make short work of the job. For many, their work is unseen, but we appreciate their efforts and thanks, Dan, for giving them the spotlight for the work and service they perform.

  3. Thank you to the 20 SLOBS, along with parents who worked at the Lillian Wadsworth Arboretum making trails, planting trees and building a kiosk. What a great group of guys! You make a difference in this town!
