Scouts who join typically feed into Glencrest Middle School and Glenbard South High School.

Service Project at St. James

Posted on Jun 23 2018 - 11:14am

Troop 352, we have the opportunity to help out our chartered organization St. James the Apostle with a small service project.  The project is to perform maintenance on some steps that connect the pastor's residence to the parish ministry center offices.  The work involves moving some limestone screening material in wheelbarrows to fill in the steps and packing the material down to form the solid base within the wood perimeter. It should only take a few hours, but would be a good chance to get some exposure within the parish.  Fr. David would come out to thank us for the work, we would take a picture, and it will go in the Sunday bulletin.  We would like to schedule this on a Saturday morning when some scouts would be available to help.  Please consider if Saturday July 14 9am to noon might work for you with a possible rain date of July 21. Thanks for your help!
