Cub Scouts Beautify Holmdel Village School, In Annual Tradition
The Cub Scouts of Holmdel Packs 131 and 331 gave back to a place near and dear to their (and their parents') hearts. On Sat., Sept. 22nd, a dozen scouts along with their parents tended to the landscaping and gardens at Village Elementary School in Holmdel. This was 1 of their 4 annual “Adopt a School Program” activities.
Inside the front courtyard’s Butterfly Garden, ambitious scouts weeded and planted. And even more scouts planted and tended the gardens near the main entrance and 2ndgrade windows.
The beautiful Chrysanthemums and Kale which were planted were specially purchased from Bayshore Greenhouses on North Beers St. in Holmdel using generous donations from Bud and Carol Unanski and the Gestrich family (both of Holmdel).
Bayshore Greenhouses also graciously donated several flats of vibrant pansies which were strategically positioned for maximum impact near the main entrance.
After an hour of serious work, the scouts posed for group photos and enjoyed Italian ices.
A wonderful time was had by scouts and parents alike. All are already looking forward to doing it again in the spring!
