Patch started a feature of locals who give their time volunteering in the community.
Meet Volunteer David Babcock:
Although David Babcock has never lived within the Borough limits, he has always considered himself a Hightstownian. From living in the area, going to school and church in Hightstown, and playing sports there – Hightstown was where he grew up.
“I have always been active in the greater Hightstown/East Windsor Community and look to continue as long as I can,” Babcock said.
Babcock, who lives in East Windsor, has volunteered in many capacities in town, including founding scoutmaster of Troop 5700, a member of the Hightstown Lions and served as their secretary and a member of Hightstown-Apollo Lodge #41 F&AM, which got him involved with the Hightstown Harvest Fair.
Currently Babcock is chairman of the Harvest Fair and on the Greenway Pedestrian Bridge Committee.
“I volunteer because it is my way of serving the community where I reside,” Babcock said. “Those who know me know that I am not political in nature, so community service, behind the scenes, has been my choice.”
Volunteering seems to run in the family – Babcock’s daughter and business partner Kim LemMon also serves at vendor chair of the Harvest Fair.
