South Park Inn Soup Kitchen Community Service Project

Posted on Sep 11 2014 - 10:14am

The Troop has been asked to prepare and serve a meal at South Park Inn in Hartford by the South Congregational Church, our Chartering Organization.  We will be planning for, preparing, and serving a meal at South Park Inn in Hartford, CT on September 24th. This is a great way to give back to the community and to our Chartering Organization while also having the opportunity to earn Community Service hours towards merit badge or advancement requirements.  We will be preparing and cooking the food at the South Congregation Church kitchen and then will be transporting it to South Park Inn located in Hartford to serve roughly 130 people.  More event and meal details will follow as plans firm up.

Please touch base with JaneMarie Galiette or Shea Mitlehner if you are interested in helping out.

Michael Balasuriyar Eagle Project Service Hours

Posted on Sep 5 2014 - 7:37pm

Hello scouts of troop156
As you know, I, Michael Balasuriyar, am working an eagle project at black ledge falls.  The project entails taking an existing bridge: moving it to a better position; adding strength to the bottom of the bridge; adding a railing; and placing foundations.

Tommorrow from 8 to 12 I will need scouts to help clear the new path to the new area where the bridge will be.  I would apritiate if any of the scout's parents would stay and help with the bridge.   If possible, please bring your own work gloves and water, saws, and garden shears

On sunday we will be pouring concrete, and I would apritiate any more experienced scouts or adults to help with the concrete
