Posted on Apr 25 2017 - 9:44pm

Please come out to help Sam C. with his Eagle Scout Project at Wynnewood Valley Park on Saturday, May 6th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. This is a great opportunity to earn service hours for requirements, as well as give back to the community in a way that benefits all! We will be removing invasive plants, planting new plants, constructing two benches, and a nice trail to meet them. I expect the project to be a lot of fun! Lunch and breakfast will be provided, but I would recommend showing up with something in your stomach. Also, if you have rakes, shovels, and especially work gloves, these would be good things to bring. Location: Wynnewood Valley Park, 1505 Remington Rd, Penn Wynne, PA 19096. Please sign up in advance on the Troop website.
