Possible Large Projects for Groups and Scouts to Complete

Posted by on January 17, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

With our new property and us working to make it a great facility for all, we have lots of projects for anyone who is interested in helping us out.

Some projects are really large and some are on the small side. They are perfect for Boy Scouts looking to do an Eagle Project or Girl Scouts looking to do a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

Or if you have a church group, school community service club or group or anyone else who just wants to help us make our “Forever Home” something we will all be proud of, please contact us about what project you are interested in.

Please feel to SHARE this information with anyone who might be interested. Thank you!!!!
