Meet at my grandmothers house at 9 am till 12 noon, get the address from the email sent out, or contact me by email. ( and yes we’ll have donuts and juice or water when you get there for you to enjoy)

I will need two crews for this day, each crew will have the responsibility of constructing one picnic table,  I will need 12 scouts and 3-4 adults to supervise.

 

Phase 2 May 7th,

We will do some finish up work with the tables like, finishing constructing if needed and sanding, then we will transport them to the designated locations, I will need 5-6 scouts and 2-3 adults.

Nates Eagle Scout Project

Hello Troop 122,

The first day of my Eagle Scout project is coming up this Saturday (December 5). We will be assembling and staining shelves to store shoes on (be sure to bring old clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting stain on).

The project will be conducted at 9:00 am at my house, at 13732 Bond St. Overland Park KS. If you plan on coming to help, please contact me at my email (nate.reichmuth@gmail.com) so that I can get an estimate on how many people are coming. I am planning for the project to be done by noon. And yes, there will be doughnuts in the morning and pizza for lunch. We could also use an extra cordless drill or two if you can bring one.

Thank you to everyone that plans on coming!

Nate

Brendan’s Upcoming Eagle Scout Project!

Hello Troop 122!
Do you have a taste for donuts or need service hours for rank advancement?
If you answered yes to one or both of these questions there is a great opportunity coming up on the Saturday of November 7th (9:15 A.M.) and again on the following Saturday, November 14th! (11:15 A.M.)
I am conducting a winter apparel drive for neighborhoods around Olathe, Kansas for my eagle scout project this fall season to help those in need in my home community. We will be collecting and donating winter clothes to Turnstyles Olathe near Olathe South High School. This project will benefit the community and keep every citizen in Olathe warm.
*Scouts will help drop off flyers and collect donations, but a total of five parent volunteers will be needed in order to transport them in between houses and neighborhoods.
If you would like to help, there are three ways that you can impact your community:
1.) Sign up for dates to volunteer your time and eat donuts!
2.) Donate your winter clothing to those in need!
Acceptable Items: Winter Coats, Jackets, Snow Pants, Boots, Hats, and Gloves.
3.) Recommend a local business or perish that would be willing to help out!
Sign up sheets will be at Troop 122 meetings on Monday Nights! I will also be there to field any questions that you may have.
Please contact me by email at blangmack@gmail.com or at an upcoming meeting if you are interested in this project.
Thank you and I hope to see you soon!

Troop 122 Trash Bag Sales?

Hello Troop 122

Several troop members have asked and we wanted to let you know:  Kristina Ferguson plans to organize a “trash bag sale” with our troop again in the spring (probably late February).   Here’s the catch: we’ve heard that Olathe School District is having students sell bags for a school fund raiser. Perhaps you can remind your friends and neighbors (and your best customers!) that you will be back in the Spring to sell trash and lawn bags to support your adventures with Scouting.   All profits from individual sales go back to the scout.

For more information, please contact Kristina Ferguson  (Kristina.Ferguson@hallmark.com)
