Our second project was a library help day in Mid December. The end of the first semester and the librarian asked for help with sorting and shelving all the books that had been returned to make sure the library was in tip top shape for winter break. Our 4 Webelos Patrols stepped up to the plate and dug in to help with gusto. It was a very lively time but unfortunately we didn’t take any pictures this time. And they even learned how the library was laid out to put everything back but shhhhh don’t tell them they learned something!
Our First project was back in October when we met up with the school for a recycling sort. Our school does major recycling and every few weeks they have to go in and sort all of the labels, containers, drinks etc and send them to the off to be recycled. Our Wolves took on this project with gusto decked out in gloves and a can do attitude.
Saturday, May 11, Troop 183, Blandon, PA completed their second quarter project with the Fleetwood Area School District. The Middle School courtyard got a much needed face lift. Way to go Boys!! Keep up the great work.
Friday, May 10th, volunteer scouts, parents and scout leaders of pack 346 provided and managed three carnival games, kick the can, bean bag toss and plinko boards at the Cotton Indian Elementary year end carnival. Working the games in thirty minute shifts left the scouts plenty of time to enjoy the activities which included a video game truck, pony ride and handling a rat snake. We had a great time with all the kids at the carnival.
A big thank you to all the scouts, scout leaders and parents that contributed home made games and participated in this Adopt-A-School service project. This was a great opportunity to instill in our youth the importance and value of service to others while also having fun. Who ever said that doing community service was boring and dirty work. Not pack 346!
Troop 262 is continuing to work on the upkeep of the Butterfly Garden at Nina Harris ESEC. This project was originally started by another Troop. After two years, Troop 262 took over this project. We have completed the memorial garden (students and staff members are remembered here) and have put together the frames for the butterflies. We still have one more garden and adding shelled walkways but we are continuing to make progress on this.
Pack 859 cleaned up Indian Creek Elementary. Knocked down spider webs and swept the entire school. Cleaned up around the entrance to the school.
The pack did their first project for our adopted school East Cheatham ElementarySchool. We cleaned out grass tore up dirt and planted flowers around the school Marquee. Everyone had a good time and the school loved it.
April 25 – We had 10 scouts from Pack 343 plus a handful of parents and siblings volunteering their time to clean up our elementary school grounds. Our afternoon started by picking up the trash around the grounds and then we did some landscape maintenance. It was too cold for us to do some new plantings.
Pack 456 was featured in the local paper after finishing their first BSAdopt-A-School project. The article references the Adopt-A-School program and tells about their project. http://www.thefranklinnewspost.com/article.cfm?ID=24771
Pack 474 is comprised of boys from Kent, WA at Millennium, Meadow Ridge and Pine Tree Elementary. Our Adopt-A-School project this year is to help our friends at Millennium – The “Trailblazers”.
One of the best features of our school is a nature trail on our school grounds. It is a looped trail that has an outdoor learning center, wetlands and is filled with native plants and wildlife. Our Principal, Ms Janes would reward our monthly Virtue students with a hike through the trail. It was used by the older classes for science projects and was a highlight of the community.
Several years ago, it was destroyed by a terrible winter storm. Trees were blown down over the pathway, making it impassable. Neglect allowed scratchy blackberry bushes and other weeds to grow up and choke out some of the native trees.
Our project and promise to Millennium is to restore the Millennium Trail back to even better condition. We are proud to put our hands, hearts and heads to work to make it better than it was before.
