SERVICE: Miles Rokala Eagle Project

Posted on Jul 4 2024 - 9:04am

Hello Scouts!

We need YOUR help! Please reach out to Miles directly to sign up!

I'm currently working on my Eagle project and have just finished the approval process. Now it's time for the fun part, building! For my project I'm constructing a sifting table for Quarry Park in Half Moon Bay in order to help improve the park's bike pump track. There's going to be woodworking involved so make sure to bring eye protection, gloves, and a power drill if you have one.

Service Project : Labor Day Weekend!

Posted on Jun 22 2024 - 10:21pm

Hi scouts!

It's that time of year again! Kings Mountain Art Festival is happening throughout the 3-day weekend for Labor Day, August 31-Sep 2  and they need our help! This year, they have asked for help with their recycling process. Zero Waste for the Kings Mountain Art Fair have stations scattered across the fairgrounds, with pairs of bins, one for recycling and one for mixed compost. They need help in moving filled and tagged bags from those stations to the two skiffs that are at the bottom end of the fairground.  The task wouldn't involve sorting discards, just moving closed bags.
