THE OA FORT SNELLING CLEANUP IS COMING SOON!
February 1, 2020, Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Minneapolis, MN

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! One of the most satisfying projects the Order of the Arrow has even been a part of is the annual clean up of the Fort Snelling National Cemetery. This important place belongs to all of us and all our community. The OA will help clean up the cemetery by removing old Christmas wreathes and other materials and piling them along the roads for pickup.

All Scouts, Venturers, family or community members, and anyone else wishing to help are welcome on Saturday, February 1, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Any OA youth or adult members willing to help as staff (free patch!) should arrive at 8:15 for instructions.

Fort Snelling National Cemetery is located at 7601 34th Avenue South in South Minneapolis. Meet at the “Activity Center” (a brown trailer) at the corner of LaBelle and Nelson Drives. Adults please bring wire cutters. Sleds can be useful to pull piles of wreaths. We also need some adult drivers with open pickup trucks, trailers, etc., to work with teams of older Scouts to pick up and dump the piled materials. Hot drinks
will be available in the trailer, but please bring your own cups! This is an all-outdoor event! Dress for the expected weather!

There's no advance registration. At check-in, we'll ask for a list of participants from each Unit. Anyone paying an optional fee of $1.00 per person will receive a patch for the activity!

Any changes in plans due to the weather will be posted on the Kaposia District website, http://kaposia.northernstar.org/ or contact Kaposia OA Service Adviser Mark Ellenberger at 612-812-9269 or mellenberger@att.net with any questions.
