Service Project Today and Tomorrow

Posted by rbruns on May 24 2015 - 2:36am

I (Brogden) am leading a workday at Creekside Bible Church.  This workday will count towards community service hours for rank advancement.

When?   Sunday (24th) at 2:00 PM -and- Monday (25th) at 9:00 AM.  Each workday is planned to be 4 hours, but if you can't stay the whole time, that is fine.

Who?     All scouts and parents are invited to come.

What project? We are building tent pads 10 to 15 feet square.

How?  First we will dig out the ground, then use re-bar to secure wooden sidewalls.  Add some dirt and landscaping fabric. Finally add sandy soil to the top.

What to bring?  Shovels, gloves, hats, buckets, water bottles and proper clothing.

Where?  See attached.

Creekside Bible Church is located two miles South on Frontage Rd.  This is about 1.5 miles South of Medved.  South Wilcox turns into Frontage Rd. South of Plum Creek Parkway.

To get to the service project work area drive to CALF ranch.  (A footbridge at Creekside is flooded) CALF is the next building south of Creeksdie bible church.  Drive East across CALF’s bridge.  Drive North past the barns to a field.  Walk North through some gates to the service work area.

Please let me (Brogden) know is you are planning to come help on Sunday or Monday. I can always use more help.  I will call everyone who has told me is coming.

Upcoming Eagle Project - June 5, 6, 12, & 13

Posted by rbruns on May 24 2015 - 1:52am


Hey this is Colin McCreary. I am building a fence at St. Francis of Assisi Church for my Eagle Scout project and wanted to invite you to help. The fence will be approximately 324 feet long and will be built behind the church near the cliff. This split rail fence needs to be built because the existing one is not safe. I would love to have your help on this project. We will be working on the project on June 5th & 6th and then again on June 12th &13th. I would like to start at 8 AM and end around 4 or 5 PM. The address is 2746 East Fifth Street Castle Rock, CO 80104. Please RSVP by June 1st, so that I can have a head count for each day.

 If you have any questions about my project, please let me know. My contact information is as follows:
