BSA Troop 347
Attention Scouts and Parents:
We've been asked to manage Immanuel Lutheran's snow removal during the 7 days spanning Monday January 21st through Sunday January 27th.
We are only responsible for clearing and de-icing the sidewalks and the areas around the building's entrances and emergency exits. ILC has contracted with other agencies to plow their parking lot.
This is a great opportunity to pay back ILC for all they do for our troop. And scouts will earn service hours for their time spent shoveling and maintaining the grounds.
Please consider committing to one or more days. You can work it as a patrol, as a family, or as a group of friends. The work is typically pretty easy. If we happen to get a heavy snow accumulation on your day, then we can always put out a troop-wide call for help.
Note: Key times of the week are Wednesdays and Saturdays before 4:30 pm and Sunday mornings before 8:00 am. Even if it's still snowing at these times, please come to clear the sidewalks. We should provide a safe and welcoming environment for church members and guests.
Instructions from Church:
Smaller snow blower is available which is kept in the new shed on the south side of the church(between Luther Hall and the music room) . There are shovels available in the west entry closet and by the main(north) entry lobby, but consider bringing your own in case the church is locked or the shovels are misplaced or if you have extra friends join you.
Clear the sidewalks on the west, north and east sides of the building including the space by the columbarium and as well as the sidewalk near the dumpsters near the southeast corner of the church. Ice-melt is also stored in the west entry closet. Spread it on icy areas and high-travel areas as needed.
The Toro Snow blower uses a gas mix of 50:1 and a can of gas mix can also be found in the shed. When you have completed using the snow blower, please check to see if there is enough gas/mix for future use. Contact Darrel(custodian) at 952-937-8123 if more gas/mix is required.
If you are unable to take your assigned time and snow has accumulated, please send an email to [email protected] requesting if anyone is available to take your spot or else contact Rick Joos at 952-353-3641 .
