Update on Patrol Activities

Posted on Oct 15 2020 - 9:54pm
Howdy Troop 1001 Adults!

We made it through our first round of Patrol Activities.  Most of what I have heard has been positive, but at PLC last night, the overwhelming Thorn I heard when we did our Thorns, Buds and Roses review, was communications.  I failed to get the activities fully staffed until days before the event and that led to late communication to and from patrol leaders.  Please forgive me for that.

Service Hours @ Arapaho United Methodist - Pumpkin Unloading on 10/3 and 10/17

Posted on Oct 15 2020 - 9:52pm
Arapaho United Methodist Pumpkin Patch is Back!
Troop 1001 has volunteered regularly with Arapaho United Methodist’s Pumpkin Patch.  After much discussion, the church has decided to continue our patch with new Covid-19 precautions.

We have some different procedures this year and will not have lines of people passing pumpkins like in the past. Instead, we will have two shifts of people to unpack the pumpkins from pallets and distribute them in our yard.

We would love to have as many Troop 1001 helpers as possible!  Many in the congregation are not able to participate in the unloading, so scouts have always been particularly important on unload days.  

This year, we are getting deliveries on Oct 3rd and Oct 17th. We have 2 shifts for distribution at 11am and 1pm, and masks and distancing will be required.
Scouts and parents are also welcome to sign up for a shift to help sell the pumpkins with a church member.  Please sign up through the link below.

Eagle Project for Jonathan Cluiss - Sunday October 11

Posted on Oct 8 2020 - 8:35pm
Hello Troop 1001,
I have been working on earning the rank of Eagle Scout for several years now, and I am excited to be very close to completion. I am proud to announce that my project will be an educational outdoor sign located in heights park, benefiting the city of Richardson. The sign will add value to the park by providing information and pictures of local plants and trees that can be found while exploring the creek / woods area. 
Phase one of my project (designing the informational layout of the sign) will begin this Sunday, October 12 and I would appreciate anyone who is willing to help.
