A Labor Day event, â€śBurgers Buy the Pool,â€ť will be held on Monday, Sept. 3. This event is being held as a fundraiser, hosted by JavaJax in Sweetwater, for the Nolan County Girl Scouts to help with their efforts in restoring the swimming pool at Camp Boothe Oaks. Improvements to the pool are necessary in order for the Girl Scouts to have an energy efficient, ADA compliant swimming pool that would draw full enrollment for a Summer Resident Girl Scout Camp to once again be held at the local camp facility. Several Girl Scouts began raising funds for this endeavor after attending the recent 60th Anniversary Open House for Camp Boothe Oaks and realizing the need for extensive pool renovation. An account was opened at First Financial Bank (account #10120019624) to enable all Nolan County Girl Scouts, friends, families and the public at large in making the pool renovation a reality. JavaJax, with the help of local scouts, will be serving a hamburger dinner (build your own burger, with beans, chips and a drink). Serving will begin at 5:30 p.m. and continue until 8 p.m. In addition to the meal, entertainment will be provided by Texas singer-songwriter George Ensle of Austin, who will be performing through the evening. Cost is $10 per person for the meal and entertainment. A childrenâ€™s under-12 menu option will be available as well. Tickets may be purchased at the door (credit/debit cards accepted).
JavaJax is located at 325 Oak Street in downtown Sweetwater. The public is encouraged to join in the event and help raise money for the Girl Scouts. For more information, call 325-933-4382.
