Many thanks to St. Pius Church in Manoa for allowing Troop 1 the use of its facilities for the Christmas wreath and tree distribution.

Proceeds from the sale are used to support troop activities, badge purchases, camping supply caches … all of the elements of a strong scouting program.

Thanks for all of your hard work, scouts!

David’s Eagle Scout Project: 10/12 – 13/2014

My Eagle project took place at Sacred Hearts Church on Columbus Day Weekend, and it’s purpose was to clean and polish the pews inside. According to some of the older parishioners, the pews haven’t been cleaned, ever. And if you’ve been to Sacred Hearts prior to my project, you could tell what they were talking about. The pews didn’t feel clean: The sides of the seats were covered in grime, there were scratches and discoloration on the surfaces and the seats were oily and dirty.

On the first day of my project, October 12th, we laid paper down on the carpets of the church, so we wouldn’t spill any of the chemicals on the carpet. On the second day, October 13th, we first used Krud Kutter to get the heavy grime off, then used a product called Milsek to get other dirt off, as well as polish the pews. We then buffed with rags between the coats. We did two coats of Milsek, as well as a semi-third coat to fill in the holes that we missed. At the end, we did two buffs, and we were done.
My project was special to me, because so much of my family’s history revolves around that church: My parents were married there, my siblings and I were baptized there, my grandpa had his funeral there, I have people I know, friends I see, and a community built up from that church. I was glad that I was able to do something to better the community of that church, hopefully for years to come.

Connor’s Eagle Scout Project at the Hawaii Nature Center: 9/21/2014

My project benefitted the Hawaii Nature Center and its focus was to build a compost bin and clear invasive species around a stream near the center.

We split up into two groups: one to build the compost bin and the other to clear the invasive species. My group worked from the morning into the late afternoon constructing and anchoring the compost bin; it was a great learning opportunity for everyone.

The other group did a great job too, although I wasn’t able to oversee everything that went on. All in all, I thought that everyone did an excellent job and the Nature Center was pleased with the result.

Troop 1 at Noelani School Craft Fair Service Project: 11/8/2014

Troop 1 scouts and parents ran the snack shop at the Noelani Craft Fair. We helped sell Spam musubis, fried rice, cookies and drinks.
There were two booths that we helped work at. I was placed at the smaller booth which only sold cookies and drinks, but it was still very busy.
Since we had more kinds of drinks at the smaller booth, it was harder to get the orders right because people kept changing their mind.
All the proceeds went to Noelani Elementary to pay for supplies and special teachers (P.E., Art, Music).
We worked there from 9:30 to 1:00. The best part about it was that it was fun trying to find each drink while only seeing the side of it underwater.

Troop 1 at the Aiea Bowl

On Sunday September 28th, we went to Aiea Bowl as an activity with the Troop 1. From 8:30 to 11:00 we where able to bowl, talk with troop mates and have a great time! The only word I can use to describe this activity is fun, Fun and FUN! We bowled for approximately 4 rounds and one of them we where able to go cosmic bowling. People where getting strikes and spares many times every round. Scores ranged from 45 to 100, but no matter what score, we all had fun! At the activity, there where approximately 17 scouts. If you where one of them you’d have to admit that you had a great time! So next time this activity comes up, don’t have a second thought about this and sign up!
