We think it’s the best way to celebrate the Memorial Day weekend. Plan to have the family participate and enjoy some service and fellowship. You will be inspired!

The Almond Road Cleanup was on the 28th of April from 9:00 to 11:00 am with 11 scouts and 5 adults.
Everyone had a great time cleaning up lots of trash along the road and with donuts and hot chocolate at the end. This was a great way to earn 2 conservation service hours for rank advancement.
