As Scouts, we are taught to look after the environment. One of our rules is to always leave the outdoor areas we occupy in better condition than we found them. Conservation is our watchword.
In Paraguay, there is a movement underway to equip children of all ages with musical instruments made from items found in trash dumps and reclaimed wood. Talk about recycling! Below is a cello made from reclaimed wood and oil barrels!
Just goes to show that those dead branches our boys find in the woods can be more than pretend guns, swords, or magic wands. It’s definitely something to think about with regard to any trash found at future campouts!
While cleaning out his garage, Tim Bachelder found a bin full of these old pack shirts. These were the “Class B” shirts the pack used prior to Davis and I joining. We’ve had two different pack shirts since then!
We are going to sell these to pack members for $5 each. We have several Adult Larges, but also mediums and smalls. Youth sizes range from small to large.
We will have a table set up at the Pinewood Derby as well as at the next pack meeting. First come, first serve!
