Scout Camp Clean-Up

On August 3rd and 4th members of the Green Zone Council along with several volunteers from the IZ community cleaned up seven acres of land to be dedicated to the Iraqi Boy and Girl Scouts. This land was donated by the Iraqi government to the Iraqi Boy and Girl Scouts. One day the Boy and Girl Scouts of Iraq will be able to enjoy this land for camping, teaching, and other events.
Thanks to everyone who has helped clean-up the camp thus far the scouts will be able to enjoy a camping event next month. The final plan for the scout camp is to put some hard standing buildings in for activities such as carpentry or sewing. The Green Zone Council will continue to improve the scout camp area for the future of the Scouting Program in Iraq.

I am Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 69 of Burr Ridge, Ill., in Des Plaines Valley Council, B.S.A. I'm also District Commissioner of Tall Grass District in that Council. Is there anything I can do to assist you in this work? I've forwarded the link to see if I can get it in the Council newsletter and on their web site. I could do an announcement at Roundtable. Anything else? Donations of money, equipment, etc.?

Is the Green Zone Council affiliated with the B.S.A. or the Iraqi Scouting Council?

What can I do to get a patch?
