Saturday May 23rd, 10am
Even though we can't meet at as a full troop, there is a very important service opportunity. Memorial Day will be here on Monday and it is the tradition of Troop 283 to place flags at the graves of military veterans at Summit Hill Cemetery and Parkers Lake Cemetery in partnership with the Wayzata American Legion Post.
We will meet Saturday at 10am at the Wayzata Legion Club. Please stay in your cars as we keep our social distance. The flags will be divided between two groups and then each group will go to one of the cemeteries to place the flags. Each group is allowed no more than a total of 10 people made up of scouts, parents and family members. Please wear your Class A uniform and a face mask is strongly recommended.
To register for the event, please follow the link below. No more than 10 people per group will be allowed to participate in order to follow BSA's current meeting policy.
No more than 10 per group
Jackie has a wonderful opportunity: On Sunday, May 31, 9 a.m. to noon, help plant 23 different species of woodland perennials in Hardenbergh Open Space and Maple Creek Park. More than 2,000 plants will be sown to fill in areas where buckthorn has been removed. Hardenbergh Open Space is a truly unique space among Plymouth's parks. Maple Creek Park neighbors have been successfully battling buckthorn for years. Come and check these places out!
Volunteers will follow safe social distancing practices. To register, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-509-5230 if you'd like to participate. I will send parking and other important information to those who have registered.
I hope you can help out!

Help us continue Scouting's legacy and join us as we conduct Service-In-Place from April 24th through May 4th.
SERVICE IN PLACE EVENT
DONATE TO SCOUTING
During these unprecedented times we need to be creative in how we conduct our Good Turn Daily, while still adhering to state and federal guidelines for safety. Service-from-Home is an opportunity for you and your family to do community service while still abiding by the stay-at-home order. Projects can range from cleaning the walking paths or parks in your neighborhood, creating cloth masks for donation to health care systems, or helping with a neighbor's yard work. No act of service is too small.
A key component is recording and sharing your efforts. Your creativity and innovation not only support our communities and neighborhoods, but it also inspires others to act. Help us celebrate your service, and provide resources to others by recording your Service-In-Place hours digitally by using our Service In Place tracker.

When you go on a hike, pick up trash along the way. Weigh it when you get back home and email firstname.lastname@example.org to have it count towards your patrol's total.
The patrol with the most trash collected will receive a deluxe ice cream sundae party for everyone, once we can meet in person again.
If the troop is able to collect a ton of trash, which is 100 pounds of garbage per Scout, everyone gets a pizza party.
