This project is a perfect opportunity for area High School Students to acquire community service hours. Anyone interested in participating should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate the time period they can attend. Students who would like community service hours should bring their forms. All participants should bring work gloves and dress for a few hours of outdoor work. Please wear closed toed shoes. No sandals. The project will take place rain or shine.
The Service Project work area will be located near the Whitehaven Trail in Glover Park (near the Whitehaven Community Gardens). The trail is accessible from either 40th & W St, NW or from the trailhead at the end of 39th St, near 39th & T St, NW (street parking is limited).
A Special note—the Potomac Appalachian Trail Crew will also be working on the Whitehaven Trail nearby from 9 AM to 12 PM. Volunteers who would like to work with the PATC Crew should meet at the intersection of 40th and W Streets, NW at 9 AM.
We will have signs posted to direct volunteers to the work areas. Please spread the word. Like they say “many hands make light work.

While waiting for our ride home, the Scouts in Troop 100 have fun playing a game.
Recently, Troop 100 attended the Fall 2012 District Camporee. We spent the weekend in Watkins Park, Largo, Maryland, where we enjoyed friendly competition with a dozen other troops from the area. The challenges covered problem solving, teamwork, and scouting skills such as first aid and fire building. In the end, two of our patrols took home second and third place- impressive, especially given the number of new scouts in the troop.
Last summer, scouts from Troop 100 visited Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimmaron, New Mexico. Philmont is the largest summer camp in the world, with 23000 participants each year and over 214 square miles of land in the Sangre de Christo Mountains. The troop sent 3 different crews of 7-8 people, each following a separate itinerary through the backcountry. Everyone had a great time, and returned with new camping, navigating, and leadership skills.
