Scouting for Food – Thanks Wells Branch!

Posted on behalf of Mendy Barnett, Pack 140 Scouting for Food Chair

Thanks to all our generous neighbors!

Our neighborhood Cub Scout Pack 140 and Boy Scout Troop 1409 held a Food Drive on January 30th.  We passed out flyers the week before in the Wells Branch neighborhood and collected over 800 pounds of canned foods!

We want to say THANK YOU Wells Branch for your generous donations, and for teaching our young boys that through service they can make a difference in their community.  All the donated items went to Gateway Church Food Pantry, which serves 100 families a meal every week.

Thank you again,

Mendy Barnett, Pack 140 Scouting for Food Chair

Editor’s note:  The WBNA would like to thank all of the adults who volunteer their time to work with our youth and instill a value system which includes community service.  Children learn by example and giving of your time and energy sets a fine example.  Thank you!

“Don’t Become a Victim”

The WBNA will be hosting a Personal Safety Seminar this Saturday from 9am-1pm at the Community Center to be taught by Travis County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Craig Smith and Senior Deputy Kim Orts.  For those of you who attended the meeting on October 21, this is an extended version with live demonstrations.

1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men will become the victim of a violent crime.    Please join us for this Personal Safety Seminar to learn how some of us inadvertently make ourselves easy targets and ways to make ourselves less likely to be targeted by a criminal.  Learn the mind-set of a predator.  Other topics include personal weapons, cell phones and social networking sites.  There will be live demonstrations.

We will be serving donuts & coffee in the morning and pizza at lunch.  Bring your questions for Sgt. Smith!  We hope you’ll join us!!!!
