Upcoming Service Projects

Hi all! Happy Summer!!
Just a quick note to let you know of a few service projects.

1) July 18th @ 9am-11:00am Homeward Bound
Homeward Bound is a nonprofit based in Arizona that serves the needs of families going through homelessness. They serve over 130 homeless families every year, providing them with not just housing but an in-depth program that helps them get back their own two feet. We will be meeting in the front parking lot at 9am at 2302 W. Colter Street. Phoenix, 85015. Scouts will be sorting school supplies for this organization. I will be attending and can give rides if needed since it’s during the week. I can fit 4 extra scouts. Please R.S.V.P. asap to me so I can let them know how many are attending.

2) July 21st @ 4:00-6:30 The Society of St. Vincent De Paul
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor and providing others with the opportunity to serve. We need 15 people, scouts and families are welcome, to volunteer in the Family Dining Room on July 21 at 4:00-6:30. We will be serving food, collecting dishes, clearing and cleaning the dinning room. I have personally done this before and it was very rewarding. Please R.S.V.P. asap to me so I can let them know how many are attending.

3) ***Canceled Event*** Tranquility- we didn’t get back to them in time so we will need to pick another date.

Thank you!

Mark Your Calendars!!! Geronimo Service Project Campout

Greetings families of 619!

The May campout is going to be the weekend of May 5th through the 7th. If your scout is attending camp geronimo this summer I *highly* recommend they attend this campout for multiple reasons:

1. It will give them an introduction to the camp, where they will be sleeping, and where everything is
2. There is a required service project for attending camp, if you don’t do the service project campout then you need to perform the project at camp which takes away time from doing electives (like the archery or shooting ranges)

We will be leaving from the church friday evening, and returning to the church Sunday around lunch.

Food plans and bunk mates will be coming out soon.

Thank you!
Scoutmaster Zoe

Flags for Veterans Day

This Saturday May 28th at 6:15AM Troop 619 will meet up near the Flag Pole at the:
National Memorial Cemetery Of Arizona
23029 N Cave Creek Rd.
Phoenix, AZ. 85024
(Entrance is off Pinnacle Peak Road just off Cave Creek)

Parking is difficult, so plan to arrive early and most will need to park along Pinnacle Peak Road and walk in, due to the number of Scouts from across the valley who attend.

The cemetery provides a limited number of pokers and all of the flags, each to be inserted by Scouts at the head of each grave.

This event usually goes quickly, as so many typically attend.

An email went out to everyone on May 23rd with a Sign Up Genius for a picnic immediately following the flag placing at Lookout Mountain Park.

Geronimo Service Project

This weekend: April 22-24

If your scout is interested and you haven’t received Robert’s email (which lists the scouts we know of attending), or if you have questions, call or text him at 623-202-4379 through Friday (today).

Scouts attending must bring a signed permission slip. HERE is the permission slip.

Bob and Robert will meet at the church Saturday morning at 8:00am. All scouts on the email, other than those going up on Friday, should meet at the church then. Travel to Geronimo, conduct service project and some will camp overnight. Bob will return late Saturday.

The project is re-coating the bridge at Webber Creek. We have the supplies.

Returning to Phoenix/Cross in the Desert on Sunday APPROXIMATELY 11:00am. We’ll have carpooling scout/s call their parent about 30 min out from the Church.
