Adopt-A-Highway Service Project, Sunday, April 19 at Rose Bank Winery

posted Apr 15, 2015, 11:02 AM by James Fiore
We are confirmed for Sunday, April 19 to complete our spring service project.

Adopt-A-Highway Service Project 10:00a - 12:00a
As we did last year, Cub Scout Pack 99 will participate in the Pennsylvania State Adopt-A-Highway program through which volunteers beautify roadsides two miles at a time. In return, PennDOT posts signs along the highway giving us full credit for our efforts. Pack 99 and Troop 99 together take responsibility for the two-mile stretch of road on SR 413 between Durham Road and Twining Bridge Road.

Traditionally for the Cub Scout Pack, this activity has been handled by only the Webelos dens because of the safety concerns related to the younger boys along such a busy road. We will work with Webelos Den 12 this year.

We expect to have bags, signs, safety-bibs, gloves, etc. that we'll pick up from PennDOT.

Rose Bank Winery *
258 Durham Road (Rt. 413)
Newtown, PA 18940

* We will park at Rose Bank Winery with special permission from Mr. Fleming, owner.

Sunday, April 19, 10:00a

  • Long-sleeved shirts
  • Long pants
  • Appropriate outerwear
Even though we will technically not have crossed over to Troop 99 (T99) yet, I have confirmed with Mr. Pursel that we may count this toward the T99 boys' service hours which will be counted toward their requirements for ranks and merit badges.

The weather forecast is favorable but in the unlikely event that we'll have to cancel due to inclement weather, I'll email everyone and will update the pack website by 9:00a Sunday morning.
