Important information about parking and access at the church

Posted on Oct 18 2014 - 10:19pm

As we have all seen there are lots of activities going on at the church.  With the additional  congestion due to the construction there have been issues with traffic and pedestrian control.   In an effort to alleviate some issue we have worked with the church to develop parking areas for the scouting associated vehicles along with entry and exit points for us to use on our meeting nights.  Please utilize only the areas indicated on the attached map.  For drop of and pick up of your son please utilize the area by the memorial fountain so your son can enter and exit the building though the doors in the new commons area.  Since many others utilize the church for meetings that are not as exuberant in nature as ours we need to ensure our boys stay within the area assigned for our meetings.  All adults need to help ensure our boys stay within the area of Wesley Hall and the commons area.  The refreshment area and its contents are not for the scouts use or consumption.  We also need to ensure that all stay out of the construction areas.   The fence around the construction area is there to keep everyone safe and we need to respect the intent of the fence.  No shorts cuts.

“An invaluable step in character training is to put responsibility on the individual.”  Baden-Powell.
