electronics-trash-620w

Every year millions of unwanted, broken, or obsolete electronics end up in land fills. Theses items often contain chemicals hazardous to the environment such as heavy metals.

Event Information

Location: Saint Luke’s UMC (box located on the first floor of the Luke’s Lodge building AND Eagle Creek Community Church (located in the main lobby).

Times: Event will be open indefinitely if it is successful. Electronics can be dropped at Saint Luke’s on Sundays and Monday nights 7:00pm -8:30pm and at Eagle Creek Community Church on Sundays from 10:30am -12:00pm.

Scrap electronics also can be recycled to recover useful materials. For example computer boards often contain a thin layer of gold.

A certified recycling company can extract this usable material and safely dispose of toxins as well.

However properly recycling your electronics can be inconvenient and sometimes expensive.

We want all of your waste electronics!

Hi Troop 56,

Stacey Stalcup, Glenn Funkhouser, and I will be supporting the Troop 56 popcorn efforts this year, whose official theme is “Galactic” (Shhh, we really want “Star Wars” but you can use other thematic ideas too; Star Trek is also good :).

Some key popcorn dates for your information:
* Sale Begins – September 17 – We will have show and sells for Scout participation
* All unsold popcorn to be returned to the Troop – October 17
* Sale Ends – October 23
* Final Orders Due – November 1
* Final Order delivery November 16 – 19

In the next week or so you will receive in the US mail the 2016 Scout Popcorn order form, which will contain info on the popcorn products. Additional general information is at http://crossroadsbsa.org/popcorn .

We will be kicking off the popcorn season with some info and Galactic (“Star Wars”) prizes for the Scouts at the first Scout meeting on August 15th.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
