Timberline District Update

Hello Timberline District,

I hope you are doing well and getting ready for a great summer. We are excited to announce some District events and news.

July Round Table:

  • July is a busy month with Family vacations, holidays and tons of summer activities because of this we will not be holding Round Table in the Month of July. Roundtable will start up again in August on the First Thursday of the month. This will be the start of a new round table season, and we hope to see everyone there.

POPCORN!!:

  • Popcorn season is coming up, and we hope you will participate in the sale. Popcorn is a great unit fundraiser where a large percentage of the sale goes back to the unit and can be used for camps, getting new tents and supplies for your unit, summer activities, and so much more. Get your unit signed up today by clicking the link below.

  • Timberline District is in need of a District Pop Corn Kernal. If you have experience helping your unit sell popcorn and would like to share that knowledge and experience with the District now is your chance. If you have any interest in helping other units grow their popcorn sales and helping other scouts to succeed, please let me know.

Bear Creek Lake Park (BCLP) needs some help, Possible Eagle Project

Bear Creek Lake Park (BCLP) is a  nature park managed by the City of Lakewood at C470 and Morrison Road.  Several Scouting units use the park for camping, hiking, fishing, picnicking, bike rides, etc. It’s a great resource in a very convenient location, running just east of the hogback that runs along the west side of town along C470.

Park Naturalist Caroline Davis is looking for some help that I believe would make a very nice Eagle Project(s).  BCLP runs a Junior Naturalist Camp all summer, and they have 3 or 4 patio tables and benches that need to be refurbished (sanded and sealed).  They would also like to build a pergola or some other shade providing structure over the patio they use for classes and other functions.  They would like to get the benches taken care of a soon as possible, as there is a risk of splinters and such, and so someone needs to jump on this quickly.

I believe there are other potential projects at the park that could be Eagle projects, and Ms. Davis would be a good contact if you are looking for a project, even if this one does not work for you or your Scouts.  You can contact her at 303-697-2548 or cardav@Lakewood.org.
