One for the Chipper

posted Feb 4, 2009, 11:51 AM by cub leader

Jeter reported that “One for the Chipper” was a huge success this past Saturday.  Pack 565 helps out Cobb County’s “Keep Cobb Beautiful” initiative by hosting this event at Sewell Park every year.  About 45 to 50 people helped out during at least some portion of the day.  Approximately 130 used Christmas trees were collected.


Here are some of Jeter’s observations:


Most boys worked a 2 to 3 hour shift.

Many forts were built and re-built in the trees.

The fire burned all day, so the usual fire bugs played.

Joseph C. was the first to show up and put up all the signs with the help of his two sons, Joseph and Jonathan.

David W. brought the table, as I forgot mine.  David also brought the two dozen donuts that the boys scarfed down.

Lunch was Subway and all the boys and siblings ate well.  [Lunch was covered by Cobb County.]

Bryce B. lost a shoe and went barefoot much of the day.

Chris M. showed up after lunch and sat in a comfy chair.

Boy Scout Troop 772 delivered a lot of trees.  [Collecting trees is one of their fund raisers.]


We have a half dozen left over dogwood saplings and 100 ash tree saplings for anyone who would like one (or more) of them.


We have a few long sleeve shirts and a couple of sweatshirts (mostly youth small and mediums) left over for any boys (whether them attended or not) who may want them.


Thanks, Jeter.  And thanks to all who helped out.
