Troop 35 Newsflash August 14, 2013


Friday, 8/16 3-7pm, Saturday, 8/17 9-1 or later if needed and Sunday, 9/18 if needed (time TBD)  – Steven S. Eagle Project!

  • Steven is sprucing up the entrance to the Prairie Path on the northwest corner of County Farm and Geneva Roads (across the street from Walgreens).  He needs the help of fellow scouts as well as adults to complete the project. He will be replacing a worn out bench, replacing rotting timbers around three planting beds, trimming the bushes and weeding in the area, then adding fresh mulch.
  •  How can the scouts help? Volunteers should bring work gloves, eye protection (if you have it – we will have some on site as well), rakes, shovels, pitchforks for mulch, any other garden equipment you feel might be useful.
  • There is limited parking at the entrance to the Prairie Path, so we recommend parking across the street in the open areas of the Prairie Trail Center Parking Lot.
  • Snacks, water and sandwiches will be provided both days.
  • IMPORTANT:  Volunteers of any age must fill out the County Special Even Release Waiver (available at meetings and on ScoutTrack) and return to a member of the Stantz Family.  Waivers will also be available on site, but advance submission is preferred.

Friday, August 16th 6:00pm – Saturday, August 17th 3:00pm – TLT at Winfield Church – All Scouts holding a leadership role, or hoping to hold one should attend this training. This training is open to all scouts in any rank. We will be helping Steven Stantz on Saturday with his Eagle Project, so please bring a signed waiver with you Friday night. This can be found on Scout Tracks.
