At the end of August 2007 Josh coordinated Troop 412 to clean up Temple Israel Cemetery. He also identified 3 Eagle Scouts buried at the cemetery and decorated their grave sites with special Eagle markers. The Troop cleaned grave sites, worked on the landscaping and planted new grass. Photos from the Josh’s Eagle Project have been posted in the Photo Gallery .
Thank you to the anonymous donor that left an “E-Z UP” popup shelter for Troop 412. One of the Troop leaders went into the Durham Scout Center and was notified that some kind person donated a popup shelter for the Troop. We put it to immediate use on our camp out at Hormel Park in August. The sun was out in full force so the extra shade certainly was welcomed. Over the last several months the Troop was also donated a Dutch oven stand (The Auchs) and portable table (The Brandquists). Thank you to all!
The weekend of Aug 22 – 24 the Troop enjoyed a nice camp out at Hormel Park in Freemont. The weather was unseasonably cool for late Summer which made for a enjoyable camp out. The Patrols were brushing up on their basic scout skills so that they assist the Webelos that will join us for a camp out next month. The Scouts participated in 4 different service projects. They cleaned up and rebuilt 2 large fire pits in the clearing of the park. They walked on the main road that circles the park and picked up all trash. A storm earlier in the summer downed some trees on top of the bathrooms in the park blocking the entrance to the bathrooms. The trees were cut up and cleared out from the area. The bathrooms were cleaned. Hormel Park is a city park in south Fremont. Park Ranger Willie dropped in from time to time to check on us and to make sure that we had everything that we needed. There are some pictures of the Troop at the August 2008 camp out in the photo gallery
