Ruth Fischer, Great Falls Boy Scouts of America Pack #4143 sent the following thank you and pictures to us for sponsoring the Boys Scouts Black Eagle Park tree planting and clean up on June 29, 2019.
“I am sending you an update on how our Great Falls Chapter Safari Club sponsored project went. We had a fabulous turnout. There were 28 youth and adults that came to help out. We had a total of seven trees to plant.
We had three groups planting the trees and the work went very swiftly. There were 2 other groups that helped out with painting the benches of the picnic tables. Everyone worked so well together the painting and planting were done in a little over two hours. We then spent some time trimming the mature trees around the park and finished our morning with Pizza from Pizza Hut for lunch.
All Participants in this project have earned their Messenger Of Peace Patch that is worn on their uniform surrounding the World Crest. This project completed the 3 requirements to earn this patch which are as follows.
- The personal dimension: harmony, justice, and equality
- The community dimension: peace as opposed to hostility or violent conflict
- Relationships between humankind and its environment: security, social and economic welfare, and relationship with the environment
I want to say Thank You to the Great Falls Chapter SCI, for being our sponsor. The Black Eagle Park is maintained by volunteer and funded by donations. We appreciate your help, and this project would not have been as successful as it was without the Safari Club’s generosity.
Thank you, to all of the Scout Families that came and helped out with planting the trees, painting, and general maintenance of our beautiful community park. “
