Replant Wadena 2011 May 1, 2011

Filed under: Boy Scout Bluster — Angie S. @ 9:05 pm

Saturday, April 30th the boys of Troop 43 helped plant trees in tornado-ravaged Wadena as a community service project.  We traveled to Wadena Friday night and got registered and started setting up tents just as the rain started. 

Luckily, at this point the rain was only a drizzle so we finished setting up

and then went to the informational meeting teaching us all how to plant the trees

before grilling up hotdogs for supper.

The next morning the boys were happy

to eat the pancakes that were cooked up for them

Then they were bussed into the city to dig holes

and plant trees

and finally they packed up to head for home.

They arrived home muddy and tired, but I know they were happy they had decided to do this worthwhile project!
