It was very hot Saturday. However that did not keep Troop 220 from getting out and doing their part to keep Alabaster beautiful and to practice Leave No Trace. Troop 220 has teamed up with Pack 220 and the Westwood Baptist Church youth group to keep Alabaster Blvd clean in partnership with the Alabaster Beautification Board. Troop 220 takes every third month to get on the side of the road and get their hands dirty. This Saturday not only did they get dirty hands but they got sweaty faces as they unselfishly removed garbage from the side of the road.

Troop 220 was invited by Field Director Clay Pruitt to perform the opening flag ceremony for the Shelby District Principals’ Breakfast hosted by the Greater Alabama Council (GAC) of the Boy Scouts of America.   The Scouts held the doors opened and warmly welcomed the principals as they arrived.  The principals enjoyed the friendly banter and greeting from the Scouts as they arrived.  After a nice breakfast the Troop performed a flawless flag ceremony to open for the speakers.  More than one person commented on what a great job they did.  Thanks to Clay and the GAC for allowing Troop 220 such a great opportunity.

Troop 220 signed up to to clean Alabaster Blvd for Westwood Baptist church.  Above is the crew that turned out the first time.  We are scheduled to do this occasionally through out the year so I am expecting that the ones above will be getting after the ones that didn’t show up about showing up.  It took a long time with just the bunch above but it was impressed upon them how easier and faster it would have been had the whole Troop showed it.  It is amazing the lessons that Scouts learn as they progress through the many things that they are involved in.  I was proud of the group above though.  They cleaned up the entire side of the road, even picking up cigarette butts.  What a nasty job.  They even removed some debris from a house that the city wouldn’t pick up.  YEA Boy Scouts!

Edit 1/19/2010 – I just found a link on the City of Alabaster web site that has some pictures of us at this event.  Check it out.
