LITTLE SAINTS HARVEST FESTIVAL

Posted on

HELLO SCOUTS………………………………

Its time for the Little Saints Harvest Festival at West Bowles Community Church.  This is an alternative to “Trick Or Treat” for little kids all over the South Jeffco Community in a safe place.  T640 has manned a booth there for 10 years.

We bounce ping pong balls off of one table into pumpkins on another table.  The pumpkins are filled with crazy toys from the “US TOY STORE”.  We are the only booth that gives away prizes as well as candy.

This is an opportunity to earn service hours and have a lot of fun at the same time.  We need 4/5/6 scouts who will run the game, chase ping pong balls all over the gym, give out prizes and candy for about 3 hours.

Email/text/etc. me if you want to volunteer. Or tell me at the next Troop Meeting.  It will be on the last Sunday of October (29th) from 4:30 to 7:30.  We need to prep and set up the booth, then help all over, then cleanup when things are over.

Eagle Project: Chasyn Johnson

Posted on Updated on

From Chasyn Johnson,

I will be doing my Eagle Scout project Saturday and Sunday October 28th and 29th.  I am fixing up a baseball field at Hosanna Lutheran Church at 10304 W. Belleview Ave.  It is the church behind McDonalds and FirstBank on Kipling and Belleview.  I need adults and older scouts there at 8 am and younger scouts at 8:45 am on Saturday.  Please wear closed toed shoes, long sleeves and have gloves and safety glasses.

I need donations of supplies and tools to complete my project:  Shovels (transfer and garden), garden rakes, weed eaters, wheelbarrows, pick.  I also have a large area to till so anyone who owns a rototiller and can bring it to help the faster things will go.  Please let me know if you have tools I can use.  You can email me at cgjroxfan@live.com.  I can pick up tools at scouts on Monday and the day of the project.

Thank you,

Chasyn Johnson

Hurley Eagle Project

Posted on Updated on

Hi everybody,

Pending final Project Approval
My name is Brad Hurley.  I am currently a Life Scout.  I am working to become an Eagle Scout!
My Eagle Project is tearing out the old and building new horseshoe pits at Clement Park.  My project is going to be done on Sunday, June 4th, 2017.  My Eagle Project start time is 8:00 AM and will finish at approximately 5:00PM.  If you would like to volunteer to help, I would appreciate it!

All scouts and adults are welcome to participate.  Since this is an Eagle Project, all hours that you can volunteer, will be counted towards community service for rank advancement.  I will gladly sign off on all hours worked.  So, come help for an hour or all day. I will provide morning and evening snacks and Pizza for lunch!

I will need some additional tools to help with the completion of my Eagle Project.  If you have any of the following tools that you would like to allow me to use for the project, please let me know.

  1.  I need 2 additional wheelbarrows.
  2.  I need 2 additional Spade shovels.
  3.  I need 2 additional flat shovels
  4.  I need 1 additional garden rake
  5. I need 2-3 additional cordless screw guns (with extra batteries, or a charger)

All volunteers will need to fill out a Troop 640 permission slip (see attached permission slip).
Each volunteer will need to complete a Foothill Parks and Recreation volunteer release form (see attached volunteer release form).

Also included with this email is a map with directions to parking and my Eagle Project work site (see attached map and directions).

Thanks,
Brad Hurley, Life Scout
