Thank you-Mulch Effort

Posted on Mar 21 2017 - 9:27am

This last weekend was both exausting and rewarding. I was proud of how hard the Scouts worked. The community of parents that pulled together was astounding. As a first time Mulch leader I wanted to give special thanks to Alajandra, Erik, Phil, Kirk, Bart, Mr. Granier, Trina, and all the drivers! You made the difference in my first year experience.

Posted on Mar 15 2017 - 8:40pm
Mulch delivery is finally here.  Everything you need to know for this weekend...
(Scouts - feel free to invite and bring along some friends from school that need service hours!)
Friday 3/17 6pm-8pm
Personal Orders
We will have leadership at the church on Friday evening getting things organized. If you have a personal order of mulch scheduled for pick-up, if possible, please plan on picking it up on Friday evening.
In order to get a jump start Saturday morning's activities, we will try to pre-load trailers Friday night. Please lend a hand if you can.

Customers who are scheduled to pick up their own mulch
Please e-mail your customers this week to remind them to come and get their mulch on Saturday between 8am-2pm. If we have un-picked up orders remaining Saturday afternoon, we will have you (the scout) reach out by phone to the missing customers.
Register today
If you have not registered on the troop calendar (attending or not attending with good reason) please do so today. We need a firm headcount to order the proper amount of food for lunch. This is a mandatory event for ALL SCOUTS and scout attendance is a demonstration of Scout Spirit.
Start time Sat 3/18
The calendar says we start at 8am, however, we will have people there at 7:30am getting things set up. We will have a few donuts! Please come early if you can, but no later than 8am and sign in with the Troop Scribe Ethan Q.
If you need to come and go during the day due to other pre-approved commitments, please remember to discuss with Mr. Grenier and sign in and out. We will continue to work as late as needed to wrap this up on Saturday, so your participation is critical. Especially in the early and late afternoon.
Bring on Saturday
Please bring refillable water bottleswork gloves if you have them, sun block/hat, and rain gear if needed.
