New Cub Scout Onboarding Envelopes Available this Fall PDF Print E-mail
Onboarding-Envelope-Featured-300x108Help our newest parents and their Scouts get their Scouting experience off to a great start by using the BSA’s free new onboarding recruitment event tool—large, 10.5-by-13.5-inch full-color envelopes that incorporate the latest BSA membership recruitment campaign graphics.

The envelopes are large enough to accommodate all of your council’s promotional information and resources so your new families walk away with one big “packet of adventure” to start their journey in the Scouting program.

The envelopes include space for a parent to record important information about their son’s unit, including leader names, phone numbers, and locations and times of upcoming meetings. There also is a call to action for new parents and leaders to check out the upgraded BeAScout.org/welcome website (also available in Spanish), where they can get more information.

The back side features specially selected promotional ads from Boys’ Life, the STEM/Nova Award program, and the Scouting Alumni Association; a special message about Youth Protection; and a discount coupon for all BSA Scout shops.

To learn more about these effective new onboarding envelopes—and to order a supply for your council’s recruiting events, if you haven’t already—read the online onboarding recruitment envelopes information sheet.

Please contact the Program Impact Department at 972-580-2441 or via email with any questions.

Our Council is ordering these so they will be available for the Fall Cub Scout recruiting activities.

 
Eagle Project Idea: Build a Walking Path to Promote Health and Build Community PDF Print E-mail
photo_3

Group Health’s Rainier Valley Campus is seeking an Eagle Scout to help develop a walking trail on their property.

Group Health staff, doctors, patients, community members, and police officers get together for a weekly Community Walk and Talk to promote health and community building. The walk and talk is currently held at a nearby park. Having the walk and talk at the Group Health campus would facilitate more people participating.

Similar Eagle Scout projects have been done for this program in Burien and Port Orchard.

For more information on getting started on this project contact Dr. Kim Holland at Holland.k@ghc.org or Kathryn Crawford Crawford.kx@ghc.org.

2014 Eagle Projects Ideas @ Soos Creek Botanical Garden PDF Print E-mail

29308 132nd Ave SE, Auburn
(a mile or so from Reber Ranch and Covington)

We are a 23 acres, non-profit, garden that was mostly planted in the 1960's and opened to the public in 2010. The Soos Creek Botanical Garden is generally open Wednesdays through Saturdays, 10am to 3pm, mid-March through mid-November. Our opening date this year is March 19th.

Scouts doing Eagle Projects may come on additional days and hours with prior notice from the Garden Director or Scout Liaison.  All projects will be designed or get design approval from the Garden Director and or Garden Manager.

Potential Eagle Projects identified for 2014:

1)  Install hand rails leading down to Soos Creek.  The area is often muddy and slippery and visitors have difficulty getting down to the Creek safely.

2)  Build storage shed to house our small John Deere Tractor and Trailer.

3)  Build a heavy arbor to hold a Wisteria Vine, which weighs hundreds of pounds and lives many decades.

4)  Build a heavy grape arbor.  Same as #3.

5)  Build a 3 sided shed, with door (attached to our Barn) to hold tables/chairs.

6)  Install Vinyl gutters to be put onto the Barn, and roof run-off from barn diverted into large cistern (we have the cistern).  Stored water used to water plants near the barn:  pumpkins, sunflowers, etc.

Please reply to scbg.barbara.nagel@gmail.com to discuss projects.  Write" Eagle Project" in the subject line.  For further information about the garden, please see our website at: sooscreekbotanicalgarden.org

Thanks,

Barbara Nagel, Garden/Scout Liaison
