Scouts, plan to join your patrol to inventory, make repairs, and organize the contents of red troop trailer. The troop is fortunate to have the trailer because it makes getting equipment to and from camp much easier and faster. It is overdue for maintaining and cleaning to continue helping scouts to be prepared with a spatula, dutch oven, extra tent stake, or other equipment needed on an outdoor adventure.
Following the trailer maintenance, join the charter organization service project that has nothing to do with mulch! Patrols have the opportunity to help the Director of Children’s Ministries with storage management and taking care of the building. The church provides the troop a place to call home and the service will help the congregation continue to support scouting.
Bring a sack lunch, because the day is not over yet. After the service project, the PLC has planed a friendly showing of the all-time greatest scouting movie ever made. This is essential entertainment that has earned high ratings from critics and audiences alike.
8:00 am Meet at the Brownell-Talbot lot on Underwood Ave
10:00 am Move to the church to to perform the service project
12:00 noon settle in to the Youth Room for lunch and a movie

Troop 42 arrives at Ben Delatour Scout Ranch for a high adventure.
The Troop 42 high-adventure crew.
Friday is the annual Bank of the West Celebrates America concert at Memorial Park, and Saturday is the troop’s annual Day–After–The–Concert service project at the park.
Distributing empty trash bags Friday night before the concert makes the project a lot easier. Meet at the bottom of the memorial stairs at 5 pm Friday in your uniform to say hello and offer plastic trash bags to concert-goers. Field uniform (t-shirt, neckerchief and hat optional) is okay. When bag supply runs out, stay with your family to enjoy the concert and fireworks show!
Saturday morning at 7 am bring work gloves, water bottles, and people to help. Fifteen thousand guests can leave a TON of trash that our service is to pick up for disposal. It usually requires 2 or 3 hours to get the whole park cleaned, and the more help the faster it goes.
Have a happy and safe Fourth of July celebration and see you at the park Friday and Saturday!
