Our Community Service
Completing service projects is one way that our Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do always his best to do a good turn daily, a group service project is a bigger way to contribute to the community of Douglas and surrounding towns. And, while they’re giving service, they’re also learning how to work as a team. Here is a list of service projects that Scouts from Pack 316 have participated in:
- Participated in the Blackstone Valley CROP Walk.
- Conducted Flag Retirement Ceremony with VFW.
- Participated in Public Lands Day at Buffumville Lake.
- Restored turtle mounds at Hodges Village Dam.
- Helped design the Sensory Trail for the visually impaired at Broad Meadow Brook Audubon.
- Collected personal products & snack foods for soldiers in Afghanistan.
- Made Christmas Cards and ornaments, and sent trees to military families overseas.
- Assisted scientists by participating in The Great Backyard Bird Count.
- Removed invasive plants from the trails at Broad Meadow Brook Audubon Sanctuary.
- Cleaned-up the litter around our streets and wetlands here in Douglas.
