Service Hours Opportunity - Messiah Lutheran This Weekend

Posted on Jan 10 2020 - 4:01pm
Pack 262 has their first PWD workshop this weekend at 1504 Westlake Dr., Plano TX 75075 - Kinda just to the NE of Messiah Lutheran.  Do either of you have any Boy Scouts or yourselves that would like to help for 1-2 hour shifts on Saturday from 1-5pm or Sunday from 2-5pm to help supervise cub scouts making their cars?  We would want boy scouts or adults with prior PWD knowledge and scouts would be old enough to be able to help supervise power tools.

Backpack Trip Opportunity - 12/26 in Big Bend

Posted on Dec 20 2019 - 6:51pm

On December 26th I and another adult lead are taking scouts to Big Bend National Park to backpack the 21 mile basin trail up to the South Rim, Boot springs, Emory Peak and back down.   Our problem is we have reservations for 8 in the base campgrounds for the 1st and last night, but we have had attrition whereas we only have 2 scouts going with us.   We have already purchased food for 8 and would like to open the trip up to 4 more scouts from other troops.  Would it be possible for you open it up to the scouts in your troop so they could participate if they are desire to join us?
