May Campout - Tubing

Posted by tmcsimov on Apr 24 2019 - 1:30pm

 

One of the best places to go tubing anywhere in the United States is the Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake, Texas.  A section of this river that is heavily tubed is called the Horseshoe.  The beauty of this section of river is that when you get done, you can just walk a few blocks and start over again.

Register here (registration closes 4/26 11:30pm)

Love Where You Live service project sign-up

Posted by cstewart on Apr 15 2019 - 10:09pm

The troop needs to know how many of us will attend the Love Where You Live service project on Saturday, April 27th.

Please sign up here

The Love Where You Live program, sponsored by the City of Plano and its partners, is a neighborhood revitalization initiative. It is comprised of 2 major components: social transformation through education, awareness and neighborhood engagement; and the physical transformation through neighborhood cleanups and home repair projects. The goal of the program is to keep our Plano neighborhoods beautiful, safe, and stable, and to connect residents to each other, the city, and our volunteers who are ready to serve.

The City works in a neighborhood for at least a year conducting monthly resident meetings and coordinating 2 Service Days where hundreds of volunteers from across the DFW metroplex take part in the physical transformation of the neighborhood. Through the process, we identify resident leaders, strengthen communities, and re-instill a sense of pride where our residents can once again love where they live.
