Eagle Scout Project at A Wider Circle (Part 1)

Our first Eagle Scout Project of the year, consisted of reworking the grassy area by the parking lot/retaining wall at A Wider Circle.     It had become overgrown.  The objective was to have the area look neat, clean and professional, as their clients would go into the business area.  

Here are some photos from the morning:

We started at apx. 9am slowly cleaning out the weeds which had overtaken the area

Landscaping had been done a long time ago, as were pulling these large stones from under the bushes and weeds.

Parish Picnic 2017 (Part 1)

This year, for the first time in many years, the parish held a picnic on June 10, 2017.   Although not attended by a huge number of parishioners, it was a nice group.

The troop was asked to assist with both traffic control and to sponsor an activity.  We did a cooking demo and set up the Trebuchet.   The trebuchet seemed to be popular with the younger boys.   

Looking from the traffic control point on Woodland down to the main picnic area.
