Eagle Bound and Soaring High!

 

 

"Blazing a Trail for Others to Follow..."

...and "We ARE Prepared!" are words that we live by.

It's an attitude... a mindset and our creed.

We are Troop 214!

Calling all troop parents with trucks and trailers (or not)!

Posted on Mar 17 2019 - 2:30am

It's mulch delivery time again -- Friday, March 29 5:00 PM and Saturday, March 30 8:00 AM until done

All Scouts, this is our mandatory fundraising activity!  Great news: Our pinestraw sales are on pace to match last year's (we have already sold a full trailer) so we will need all hands on deck for deliveries and spreading that weekend!

As before, please bring your vehicles, tie-down straps, rakes, brooms, and get-it-done spirit for a day and a half of amazing fellowship and fundraising fun!  Don't worry if you don't have a truck -- parents are also needed to transport and guide spreading crews.

Reminders:

  • Dress in layers -- Scout uniform not needed
  • Work gloves, sturdy shoes or boots
  • Long sleeves protect you from prickly pine needles
  • Water bottle, water bottle, water bottle!
  • Rain or shine -- bring either sunscreen or rain gear
  • If you must leave for an unavoidable previously scheduled activity, please return to give the troop the rest of your time and share in the work
  • Your hours of work will be rewarded with money to your Scout account to help pay for your Scout trips
  • Lunch will be provided
  • Teamwork gets all of our deliveries and spreading done on Friday and Saturday so that we won't need to also work on Sunday
