September 18th Stillwater Lake Clean-Up

The water in Stillwater Lake has been drawn down in preparation for the Stillwater Lake Dam construction project. With the receding waters there are items surfacing that must be removed from the lake to provide a cleaner and safer environment for the wildlife, Scouts, visitors and residents of Stillwater Lake. Venture Crew 940 will be hosting a "Stillwater Clean-Up Weekend" on September 17-19, 2010 at Camp Minsi.

The purpose of this weekend is to remove the trash, tires, metal objects and other debris that has surfaced since the water receded. Troops are invited to come and camp for the weekend - free of charge - in one of our campsites (you will need your own tents, as the summer camp canvas has been put away for the season). Scouts will spend Saturday doing a good turn as they clean and remove debris from the shores and lakebed of Stillwater. Crew 940 will provide lunch on Saturday afternoon to all those who assist in this very large task. Wear sturdy shoes and come prepared to get wet and muddy working (showers will be open afterwards)!

Please register for this event by contacting Lisa Empfield (Camp Minsi Summer Camp Director and Crew 940 Committee Chair) with your unit's information and the number of youth and leaders attending by September 15th.

To register, or if you have any questions, contact Lisa Empfield, lempfield@aol.com or 610-751-0849.
