Benches for Church Visitors

Austin chose to do a Project for the Chartering Organization of our Troop, Milwaukie Presbyterian Church.

The project gave the church a much needed landscape re-design in front of the sanctuary. The church was looking for a welcoming place where visitors could sit to look at the garden area in front of the building.

The project consisted of placing 2 benches approximately 18 inches away from the wall in front of the church. They were placed evenly between the front window & the sides of the building. Ferns were planted around the benches to give a more natural look.

Link to Troop 376 Facebook Page Added

Here is a Link to our Troop 376 / Crew 376 Facebook page. Folks have asked for this Link for some time now, but we haven't had an easy way to anchor it on this 'Home' Tab.

Over time, this Post will move down the page & move into the Archive pages at the bottom of this page. As a result, we have added the same Link to the Facebook page as the first item listed on the 'Resource Center' Tab. (It is called '*** Troop 376 Facebook Page ***'.)

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.

Plant Identification Signs

Trevor wanted to do a Project for the Chartering Organization of our Troop, Milwaukie Presbyterian Church.

The church owns all the property behind the rear parking lot that goes down toward Kellogg Lake. This area is known as the Outdoor Sanctuary. The church has been working for several years to remove invasive species of plants from all of this property.
