Aluminum Can Recycling

Posted on Apr 10 2014 - 8:14pm

Aluminum can recycling (our trailer in the back of the church!)  is an easy way to put money in your scout accounts. Ask friends and neighbors to save some cans for you!  The trailer is half full right now and the going rate is around $.50 per pound.  Here's what to do....
1. Weigh each bag individually.  The clipboard with log, pen and yellow hand weigher is in the scout closet in the church hanging on the wall by the light switch.  Everyone should use the same scale.
2. Record your name and weight of cans legibly.
3. Empty all cans from bags into the trailer.
4. Take your garbage bags home and throw them away. ( a scout is clean!)
5. Return the clipboard to the scout closet.
That's it! Pretty easy!  Don't forget to take advantage of this.  Contact Mrs. Riegert at aluminum_cans@bsatroop347.org if you have any questions.

Grants for Eagle Scout Service Projects Available from Lowe’s

Posted on Feb 6 2014 - 7:36pm

The Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation continues to offer $100 Discover gift card grants to Eagle Scout candidates to use toward their Eagle Projects.

In 2012-13 more than 3,000 Scouts received these grants for their Eagle Scout service projects, and we hope to ex-ceed that number during the 2013-14 program. So far, 175 councils are participating and more than 1200 Eagle Scout candidates have received grants.

The grants are administered through volunteers in each local council. Scouts interested in the opportunity should contact their local council service center. They may use the grant application form found at www.scouting.org/filestore/Lowes/doc/Lowesgrantapplication2013.doc. Councils not yet participating in the Year-2 Lowe's service pro-ject impact grant program will find more information by visiting www.scouting.org/TrailToEagle or by sending a mes-sage to lowes.grant@scouting.org.
