Hello scouts and families of Troop 355,
My name is Matthew Castro and I am going to be doing my Eagle Scout Project this weekend at the Huntington Library’s Experimental Ranch Gardens. Here’s the run down:
Who am I?
A little about myself, I am currently a Life Scout, a senior in high school, and one of your current ASPL’s. You see at almost all of the troop meetings.
When is your Eagle Project?
This weekend from February 4th (9AM to 3 or 4PM) to February 5th (9AM to 1 or 2PM). I understand that the Super Bowl is on Sunday and I will make sure that we finish up for the day a couple of hours or an hour before the game. That should be enough time for you to get home and enjoy the game.
What will we be doing?
We will be in the Ranch Gardens weeding out the area, checking and replacing parts of the irrigation system if necessary, cardboard mulch the area, and top the area off with organic mulch.
Where will we meet?
On Saturday and Sunday, we will meet at the entrance of the Huntington Library, at the cafe or ticketing area, where all the tables are at 9AM. For those showing up later, you can ask the staff where the Ranch Gardens are and they can direct you there. Just make sure you tell them you are here with the Boy Scouts. There should also be signs posted up directing you there. However, you can always send me a text and I will send a scout or I will meet you at the entrance and walk you to the work area.
Do I have to bring anything?
All tools will and safety equipment will be provided by the Huntington Library, however if you have a pair of work gloves, bringing them would be ideal. Also, food and refreshments will be provided by me.
Additional Info: Since the work space is a little big, it would be much appreciated to have as many scouts to come out and help. For those who are going to show up, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org that you will be coming out so I have a rough estimate of how many scouts I will have attending. You can also text me at (626)-378-8238, but just make sure you include your name. You do not need to contact me to show up and help. This is just to get an estimate of people that will be coming. For those planning to park, make sure to show up before 11:00AM. The weekends, especially this weekend, is expected to be one of the busiest weekends for the Huntington Library.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at anytime using the information I have provided above. Thank you!
