Veteran's Flag Planting with Pack 977

It is VERY important that we have a good turn out for this event!!! We will be participating with Pack 977 to place Flags at Veteran's graves for Memorial Day at the Willamette National Cemetery. We should all sit together as a large group (Troop 376 & Pack 977) in the amphitheater under the large flag pole at the top of the hill.

Alert!!! Camp T shirt Pre Orders. Need someone to Coordinate this!!!

I know that many families like to pre order Camp Tshirts for summer camp.

I was just reviewing camp T-shirt pre order information and noticed that in order to "Pre order" and get our Troop number on the Sleeve we need to have our order in by May 10th. Cost is 12 for xlarge and smaller. Cost is 15 for 2xl and larger.

We need to get peoples names and money to the coordinator by Saturday and they need to place the order by Sunday.

I will give the coordinator additional information once we have a volunteer

Note: No one is required to order a camp t shirt.

Raised Flower Beds for Horticultural Therapy

Joshua worked with Tara, the Horticultural Therapist from Willamette View. Tara's idea was to have some Raised Flower Beds for residents with limited mobility to use. Residents that have a garden or flower bed to tend are more active as a result. Tara asked for 19 Raised Bed Planters -- 3 being single Planter Bed frames & 8 being double Planter Bed frames. 5 of them at 'wheelchair height' & the rest at 'standing height' -- to be placed in an unused patio at the facility. Joshua took measurements to use for the 2 varied heights.

Operation Winter Storm

Matt chose to do his project for a school that he used to attend. Through the years, there were improvements made at the school that resulted in water runoff problems during the periods of heavy rain. Much of the water drainage would flow together & end up backing up toward the school. Eventually flowing down the stairs & into the downstairs hallways & classrooms. These areas have suffered damage a couple of different times in the past several years.

2 New Eagle Scouts from Troop 376!!!

Make sure to congratulate Matt Bruhn & Josh Freitas the next time you see them! Each of them passed their Eagle Board with flying colors.
