Lorence Creek Preserve

This site is near the Shadow Cliff Swim & Tennis facility at the intersection of Eagle Grove and Redwoods Crest (78232). The project is to spread some mulch in the area beneath the swing set and some minor tasks. The goal is to spruce up the area for a Pumpkin Patch. This could be a patrol size activity which will require about three hours….start time is 9:00 am.


Colonial Gardens Alzheimers Unit

This is a facility for patients with Alzheimers…..located at 20 Batts Lane (adjacent Harry Wurzbach).

The project is to rebuild five planter boxes made with treated lumber. The facility has been asked to obtain the materials. We promised volunteers to rebuild them and some modest spreading of gravel to improve the walking path. This could be a patrol size activity which will require about four hours work.

Camp Fawcett Service Project

Need dads and older scouts to help build forms for a concrete slab.

See message from Kevin Marquardt…..we need some dads and senior scouts willing to volunteer at Camp Fawcett on October 21. If available, please contact Bill McCalister at [email protected].

Subject: RE: Camp Fawcett Upgrade

Mr. Mac,

My plan is to form the slab, lay the plastic and tie the steel. I think that depending on the people that 285 is sending us, there will probably be enough skills available to get more of the project done. As of tonight, Hardy Hardin is planning on taking his machine out there to dig the beams in the slab. While we are forming and working on that he is going to start digging trenches and laying the pipe. So, I can use some guys to help me form and work on the slab and he could use a couple to shovel dirt and lay pipe.

We are planning on getting there Saturday morning. I will stay as long as it takes to get the slab formed.

Please RSVP for this event through Scoutbook
