Cub Scout Pack 339 and friends help clean Ronald Reagan Sports Park

Tonight close to one hundred Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, siblings and parents met at the Ronald Reagan Sports Park to help pick-up trash and show a little community pride.

The group met at the recreation center beforehand to eat some pizza which was generously donated by the Save our Southwest Hills Organization.

After a quick dinner a safety orientation was held. Snake avoidance was at the top of the list, followed closely by dangerous items and potential biohazzards, all of which the boys and girls were told to steer well clear of. Gloves and Bags were donated by the City of Temecula.

Dan Brunell from Temecula Cub Scout pack 339 was the event organizer, and it was a spectacular turn out by both the Cub Scouts as well as a huge showing from Girl Scout troops from the San Gorgonio Council. This is the first time the two organizations have worked together, and hopefully additional joint projects will take place in the future.
