Annual Troop Service Project to benefit Kiwanis

Posted on Feb 4 2016 - 9:13pm

Looking for a Star rank (or above) Scout, or a Parent Volunteer, to organize a Community Service Project to benefit Kiwanis.  Kiwanis is our Chartering Organization and there is a list of projects to choose from!  You don't have to do this alone, team with a group of Scouts, or another Parent, and I can work with you along the way.  Remember, Scouts who just earned their Star rank, 50% of your Service hours is to be on a conservation project--this would be perfect! Excellent opportunity to practice organizing for an Eagle Project and there is the option of earning the "Conservation Good Turn Award" if you plan for it. Contact Mrs. Luke Velasquez, Community Service Chair:  penny.lv@gmail.com
