2018 Chief Scout Projects

This year, seven of our scouts have completed requirements for their Chief Scout Awards.

Cooper:

For my Chief Scout Project, I ran a food drive for the Salvation Army’s House of Hope.
I went around my neighborhood, collecting non-perishable food items. After 6 hours of work, I ended up with 2 full shopping carts worth of food. The people volunteering at the Salvation Army were very exited to see the big donation, so I feel I have really helped the community.

For my Chief Scout project I organized a work party helping at the soup kitchen at the Vernon Upper Room Mission. The Upper Room Mission is a place that makes meals for people who are going through a rough time and may not be able to afford to buy their meals. For my project, the third-year scouts helped with cooking in the kitchen, serving food, cleaning tables, and organizing the storage room.

I organized a day for the scouts to help in February by contacting the kitchen manager. The day was a great success, and I was pleased with the final outcome.

Brendan:

My chief scout project was going to Polson extended care and the Hamlets and singing some songs for them! I got this idea when we were thinking of things I enjoy and thought about something musical.

We contacted my friend from my church, Grace Wulff, and she gave me contacts for these places. I picked some songs from my uncle Bob’s song book and then we practiced them at a meeting.

On April 16, we went and sang for the wise with age people and they all loved it! Thanks to all the scouts that came and helped sing!

Bethanee:

For my Chief scout project I decided to help out the Vernon SPCA.

I designed and printed flyers, delivered them to people’s houses.

The flyer told them what supplies the SPCA needed and when I was picking them up. I went and collected the supplies from the scouts and the people, then on Saturday, May 12th I went up to the SPCA and delivered them. They were very happy with all the items. I was able to get two boxes of blankets and towels and one box for the toys and food, as well as $35 in cash donations. The total donation value was estimated at $150.

Mac:

For my Chief Scouts Project, I created a website for the Vernon PC Users Club. The Vernon PC Users Club (or VPCUC) is a group that meets once a month (September to June) to teach those over 50 how to stay safe online and stay current with technology.

I joined that group three years ago not knowing that my skill in HTML Coding would come in handy, I have been apart of the group ever since.

In October 2017 I was asked by the group to create them a website because they had lost their old website. I started work on it during November which was right around the time that I started thinking about my chief scout project and what I wanted to do. I decided that I could combine the two.

I uploaded the website on May 8th. As a part of the group, I will continue to keep the site up to date: http://vpcuc.org/

Kris:

My Chief Scout Project was a community clean – up in Armstrong. I got the idea by looking at the area in Armstrong and noticing all the garbage around my community and school. I contacted Debbe Nelson via email to see what needed to be done. We emailed back and forth and came up with the day of Saturday April 28th from 11-2pm. We cleaned both sides of Smith Drive and had 21 volunteers from Cubs, Scouts, Vents, Scouter and Parents. We collected 13 ½ bags of garbage and one broken chair. It was a great day and I feel good about my project making Armstrong a cleaner community.

Sophie:

For my chief scout project, I collected socks for those in need and donated them to Common Threads, Vernon Alliance Church’s outreach program. I collected socks from the adults and youth of the 1st BX Scout group and by April 30th I had collected 192 pairs of socks! Then on Sunday, May 6th I donated the socks to the church. I feel like I helped the community because now those in need can, too, have happy feet!
