Service Project - Townsend Park

Posted on Oct 16 2017 - 6:47pm

I received an email today from Virginia Sines that I wanted to share:


Wow!  The scouts and team leaders did an amazing job on Saturday!  We received a lot of cancellations due to the weather forecast, but the scout team came out with boots and rain gear to get those plants in the ground!  And it was wonderful that the rain let up around 10 am until 11 am – enough time to get everything planted.
