Hello Scouts and Scouters,

The December outing will be just a one day activity at the Pioneer Cemetery located on the University of Oregon Campus. For scouts working on their Citizenship in the Nation merit badge, this will fullfill requirement 2a. We will be taking a tour of the cemetery starting at 10 o’clock followed by a service project from 11-1. Please show up at 9:50 so we can start the tour promptly at 10. Scouts and scouters should be prepared for inclement weather. Tools that they suggested we bring are weeding tools ( the long single prong type) and pump spray cans for water. Please also bring your own gloves. All other tools will be provided. At 1 o’clock we will be having pizza from Sy’s at the cemetery and wrapping up the outing at 1:15. There will be a sign up sheet at Troop starting on November 29th for this fantastic event. You will not want to miss this unique opportunity to experience the history of Eugene and contribute to the preservation of the community’s past.
Driving instructions:
Enter the Cemetery via 18th Street. Turn North off 18th on the West side of the Cemetery and drive through the constuction zone of the Music School. The road will wrap around and bring you to the center of the Cemetery and where we will meet at the caretakers quarters.

Kind regards,

James Braham
