Recently planted flowers

Posted on Jul 27 2017 - 11:01am


We need your help. The flowers we planted last Sunday at the Manning Oaks entry sign now need help to grow. They need constant watering to help establish themselves and to help fight the heat we are going through. The tricky part is that there is no irrigation system at the school to help water the flowers. We used two five gallon buckets that we filled at the outside spigot and carried the water up to the planter. I have a key ( photo attached) that can be used to turn on the water. If people would be willing to volunteer to by the school, fill the buckets, water the plants then put the buckets back that would be great. It would be nice to keep the flowers alive so everyone can enjoy them when' school is back in session. Once school is back the after school program agreed to help water everything.

I'm going to leave the "water key" on my front porch. If anyone wants to come by and get it to go water the flowers it would be appreciated. The spigot is located at the front of the school near the drop off canopy in the front. It has a silver square door on it.

Call me if you have any questions

Conservation Service Project this Sunday (7/23) @ Manning Oaks 9am

Posted on Jul 18 2017 - 12:33pm

Thanks to those who came out this past weekend -the boys had a great time reading the books @ the centers;    And topped it off with an enjoyable showing of Despicable Me in the afternoon.

New (short notice) Volunteer Event:   This Sunday 7/23 @ MOE @ 9am 

Mr. Webb was hoping to have our Scouts repair the garden beds a little bit and paint them (the ones we put up a year ago).   Also to plant some flowers at the front sign and near the front entrance.  And removal of plants that were killed due to the ice storm 3 ½ years ago.

I believe MOE is going to provide the flowers and the paint;   if we could bring some shovels, work gloves, paint brushes, hammer, etc.

If you're interested in attending, please email me directly (and plz let me know what gardening tools you have) - jitster@hotmail.com

Trampolines and Popcorn

Posted on Jun 29 2017 - 11:12am
Hello Pack 4417 Scouts!
Do you want to enjoy FREE jumping at X-drenaline AND learn how to sell tons of popcorn?  I received the following email to share with you.  My family will be out of town for this event but I encourage you to sign up ... for the fun and the learning opportunity, if you can.
I'm hearing from some of you that the link to the pertinent info (time, date, location, cost for more kids, etc) isn't working well. 
The event is: 7/15/2017, time slots are from 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM.
